Domestic Duck Production. Science and Practice
by P. Cherry, T. R. Morris
Edition: 1st., 2008
This book is intended as a practical guide for technical and advisory staffinvolved in both commercial and subsistence-level duck production, as a referencetext for commercial producers and their professional staff and as a
resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The text describes research conducted and experience gained in differingclimates and economic conditions between 1975 and 2005. Genetic selectionand technical innovation have dramatically improved duck performance during
those 30 years, but that has not substantially altered the concepts and relationshipsreviewed and described in this book. The science remains the same,although practice evolves.
