Publisher Description

The third book in the organic farming series shows how to produce livestock using organic faming methods, with particular emphasis on sheep and wool.

This book about organic livestock follows others in this series Organic Farming: an introduction and Organic Farming: crops, fruits and vegetables. The principles of ecology outlined in the introductory book are essential for the success of any organic enterprise and this includes the importance of soil and its continuing improvement because soil is essential to the production of feed for livestock.

This book covers some principles of organic livestock farming plus extensive case studies for a range of enterprises such as lamb and beef, dairy, pigs, mussels, turkey, eggs and wool — and many other examples.

There is a growing demand for organic produce, and this book explores the value-adding benefits of organic practices in farming, economically and environmentally. With a scientific background and a wide range of real world case studies, this book will help you consider different methods of organic farming and how to implement them. It will show you how to farm in a way that cares for the environment, without using synthetic chemicals.
