By Temple Grandin.
In an environment of growing concern regarding large factory farming practices, this book promotes the benefits of keeping animals calm through every phase of their lives - benefits that include safer working conditions, higher yields of marketable meat, better-quality meat, and, of course, humane conditions for the animals. Describes low-stress methods for moving cattle on pastures, paddocks, and feedlot pens. Calm cattle eat better, are less likely to become sick, less likely to injure themselves and bruise the meat, and are also far less likely to injure the humans working with them. Packed with construction plans, diagrams, and detailed designs. Contains plans for everything from gate latches to chutes, corrals, and sorting pens for large or small operations. 227 pages, 8-1/2 in. x 10-7/8 in. Softcover.
