With contributions from a number of specialists in their given field, The Smallholder s Veterinary Handbook covers all the animals you would usually find on a smallholding, from bees to bovines. Acknowledging that smallholders are in the unique position of having time to both study and know their animals, their behavior, their habits, their likes and dislikes far better than farmers of larger herds or flocks, the book sets out to aid the diagnosis of disease so that the smallholder can take the necessary action quickly and thus avoid the spread of disease. The book covers bees, bovines, sheep, poultry, goats, turkeys and pigs with contributions from Janice Houghton-Wallace, Paul Peacock, Carol Harris and Jayne Upton, among others."
