An understanding of the processes that change the shape and composition of farm animals is fundamental to all aspects of production. Updated to include new chapters on avian growth and global warming, and citing new research throughout, this comprehensive textbook provides key information on how animals grow and change in shape and composition, and the factors that affect these processes. Presented in a larger format with new photographs and focus boxes, this third edition continues to fill the important role of helping to understand how the basics of growth must be thoroughly understood if farm animals are to be used efficiently and humanely in producing food for mankind.

"The updated third edition of the textbook is a valuable introduction to the important area of growth of farm animals. The authors describe all steps from cells to tissues to entire animals and to food of animal origin. The book provides fundamental knowledge for animal production. This book is a valuable resource for undergraduate students in animal and veterinary sciences, but it is also an important aid for all those dealing with meat sciences and meat processing."
