Completely updated and revised, Farm Animal Behaviour 2nd Edition continues to provide essential information on normal and stereotypic behaviours in a wide variety of farm animals to help in the assessment and diagnosis of their health and welfare.

Comprehensive coverage of a range of farmed animals from: horses, cattle, sheep, goats and pigs through to domesticated poultry, deer, ostrich and many other species.

Innate, learned and social behaviours are described together with activity, vision and hearing to build a picture of normal behaviours presented in a clear and consistent way for each species.

Stereotypic behaviours, injuries and disease, resulting from improper management practices, are outlined in detail.

For the second edition
Professor Stefan Gunnarsson joins the author team and contributes his long-standing knowledge, clinical and scientific expertise.
Many new snapshot photographs in full colour throughout have been added to further illustrate behaviours as they occur.
New information on normal and stereotypic behaviours is included.
The explosion in new research is captured with a wealth of new references and pointers for further reading.
A consistent approach to each species allows for easy comparison.

Farm Animal Behaviour 2nd Edition provides a comprehensive yet concise background for all students, postgraduates and practitioners in veterinary medicine, animal science, welfare and ethology.
