The science of animal production has recently become headline news. The cloning of sheep, the use of pig xenotransplants and bovine somatotrophin, as well as mad cow disease, are all examples of how livestock production is related to food safety, human health, ethics and quality of life. The relationship between intensive developed-world animal production and that of the developing world also raises ethical issues. These are just some of the topics addressed in this book, which originated in a special symposium held at the VIII World Congress on Animal Production held in June 1998 in South Korea. Additional chapters have been commissioned for the book to improve its comprehensiveness.

Industry Reviews

"Papers from a June 1998 symposium at an animal production conference in Korea are augmented by essays commissioned to round out the coverage. Contributors from agriculture, food sciences, and philosophy address such concerns as why livestock ethics and quality of life are important, their place in larger systems of food production and philosophy, agribusiness and consumer ethical concerns, an alternative ethic for animals, poverty and the quality of rural life, the intensification of agriculture and free trade, development in Latin America and Africa, and the food-feed dimensions of grain demand in Asia."--SciTech Book News "Papers from a June 1998 symposium at an animal production conference in Korea are augmented by essays commissioned to round out the coverage.
