Raising Healthy Poultry - 1990-01-19

W. Malcolm Reid (1910-1990) was Professor Emeritus of Poultry Science (Parasitology) at the University of Georgia. He saw a need for a book dealing with basic poultry production and recruited others to help him develop one.

Raising Healthy Rabbits - 1988-01-19

This manual is designed to give basic information that has been shown to be successful in a variety of situations. We have often opted to describe methods that may be too sophisticated or expensive to apply in every case in an effort to illustrate the optimal condition.  Obviously, not everyone will be able to install stainless steel caging and automatic watering systems, but to omit these would impede individuals aspiring to achieve the ideal.  In most cases we must rely on your ingenuity and creativity to 'make do' for your particular climate and cost restraints.

Raising Healthy Pigs - 1984-01-19

This book speaks to the challenges of small farm pig production. The two main themes of malnutrition and parasite control are dealt with in depth, utilizing very practical ideas and methods.
