Authored by renowned animal scientist Robert Blair, who has a peerless reputation in organic livestock nutrition, A Practical Guide to the Feeding of Organic Farm Animals aims to translate the science of feeding organic livestock and distil it into practical guidance for farmers and producers.

There is also advice on making the transition from conventional to organic farming systems regarding feeding. Sections cover poultry, pigs, cattle, sheep, and goats, including topics such as: the nutritional requirements of each species, identifying suitable ingredients and feeds, overviewing husbandry techniques and system approaches, providing advice on selecting suitable breeds, and advising on nutrition and its relationship to health with a preventative approach. The final section provides advice on organic nutritional regimes under integrated farming operations. This book is an ideal resource for the smallholder farmer, as well as traditional and aspiring organic livestock farmers.
