Also included are all aspects of specific production and management practices-as well as concepts in the marketing of animals and the processing of their products-as these aspects relate to beef, dairy, horse, poultry, sheep, swine, and aquaculture industries. Global trends in animal product consumption, to feed manufacturing, the ruminant digestive system, nutrition and feedlot management, farm animal reproduction, genes and chromosomes, the importance of milk production in different species, growth and development, marketing meat animals, the merchandising and promotion of wool, the business of producing eggs, and much more.
