Organic Livestock Handbook
This handbook is intended as a guide for livestock producers who are
looking for information on organic management practices as they relate
to animal husbandry. It will be useful for both experienced livestock
producers and those considering introducing livestock to their farms.
It is not a comprehensive book on basic livestock management, there are
many good reference materials already available; nor does it include
information on organic cropping practices as these can be found in the
companion volume the Organic Field Crop Handbook.
Written and compiled by: Anne Macey with contributions from writers and farmers across Canada and the northern U.S.
