Kurzbeschreibung

7. August 2008
Temple Grandin, one of the most influential advocate of humane livestock treatment, has spent her life developing stress-free facility designs and standards of humane management. In an environment of growing concern regarding large factory farming practices, Grandin is a voice of reason explaining the benefits of keeping animals calm through every phase of their lives - benefits that include safer working conditions, higher yields of marketable meat, better-quality meat, and, of course, more humane conditions for the animals.The first half of "Humane Livestock Handling" reviews the natural behaviour and temperament of cattle. Working with the animals' natural instincts, Grandin describes low-stress methods for moving cattle on pastures, paddocks, and feedlot pens. Slow, controlled movement reduces stress and fear, resulting in calmer, healthier cattle. They eat better, are less likely to become sick, and do not run into fences and gates, injuring themselves and bruising the meat. Calm cattle are also far less likely to injure the humans working with them.The second half of the book is packed with construction plans, diagrams and detailed designs for putting Grandin's ideas into practice. Featuring plans for everything from gate latches to chutes, corrals, and sorting pens for full-scale facilities, there are designs that can be used in both large and small operations. In fact, half of the cattle in North America are already handled in systems designed by Grandin, and the demand for humanely processed meat continues to grow. Temple Grandin's systems are quickly becoming the industry-wide standard.

Pressestimmen

If the animals on America's factory farms got together to award an Animal Nobel Peace Prize, they would surely give it to Temple Grandin. Who else has brought her combination of deep empathy and hard-headed engineering know-how to their lot? "Humane Livestock Handling" will make that know-how more widely available, and few things could do more to improve the lot of these animals. -Michael Pollan

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well Illustrated! 11. September 2008
Von E. Voogd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book starts by giving the reader an excellent explanation about why livestock behave as they do and helps the reader to understand differences in breeds, temperament and type. The book then explains how to design and construct ranches, feedlots and harvest plants, for optimal handling. The illustrations are outstanding! For anyone who is planning to build, the blueprints and instructions will be very helpful. Thanks!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Humane Livestock Handling: Understanding livestock behavior and building facilities for healthier animals 14. Januar 2009
Von Michael J. Canal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is one of the best books on livestock handling to date. It has the hows and whys of livestock handling in a way that everybody can understand. It is well written and easy reading. I would highly recommend this book for anyone planning to build a cattle working facility. The plans are clear and easy to follow. These facilities are long term commitments and the plans that are outlined in this book will put someone on the right track to get it done right.

5.0 von 5 Sternen information overload 17. Februar 2010
Von Leonard Dempsey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a book that should sell for much higher for those with livestocks particularlly cattle. I was looking for a book or something alluding to building a cattle corral. Well this book is information overload for my measlly (sp) quest. I enjoyed and continue to enjoy this book, I just hope my sistes does not try to steal this book since she married into a family with cattle. The information within the book provided me with answers to my questions. Over all the book is a whole lot more then just hints, tips and methods of building a cattle corral.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellence in one source 6. März 2010
Von Ann B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
After watching the movie Temple Grandin I purchased this book and several more of hers. Got this one especially for my husband (farmer/rancher), who was very pleased to have this information all in one place. Even though he was born into farming/ranching and has had several decades to understand cattle, etc. there is always more to learn. Especially from one who can see from an animal's point of view. Excellent resource.

Von L. Hennings - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I enjoyed reading through this book, as it gives so much valuable and instinctual information. Now, I keep going back to it as a resource and recommend it to anyone who deals with animals, or is just interested in learning more about animals. So many insights.
