New Techniques in Sheep Production is an eight-part book that first reviews sheep production systems and scope for improvement. Subsequent chapter focuses on methods of increasing fecundity. Parts III and IV describe reproduction methods and genetic improvement techniques. Other chapters discuss breed development; feeding systems; management and health control; and evaluation of techniques in sheep production. This book will be of value to the pioneer farmers, their advisers, and supporters in the associated marketing and supply organizations, as well as to students at agriculture and veterinary universities and colleges.
