Summary
Author Temple Grandin is famous for her approach to decoding animal behavior. Now she extends her guidance to small-scale farming operations. Grandin's explanations of how herd animals think -- describing their senses, fears, instincts, and memories -- and how to analyze their behavior, will help you handle your livestock more safely and effectively. You'll learn to become an observer of animal movement and behavior, and illustrations will help you set up simple and efficient facilities for managing a small herd of 3 to 25 cattle or pigs, or 5 to 100 goats or sheep
