Successful livestock rearing begins here--with the practical, basic essentials of husbandry.  Livestock Rearing in the Toprics has been written in a plain understandable style for the producer--farmers and farm managers--for school, agriculture college or university.  The information required for planning and managing a livestock production unit, big or small, is presented for all the main types of livestock in a concise, illustrated form.  Housing, rearing of young, feeding, handling, breeding, disease prevention and health maintenance are covered.  This information can be applied to any region of the tropics but the principles of adapting systems of management and choosing breeds appropriate to different ecological areas are stressed.
