Animal science studies the biology, health, production and management of animals, which are of economic interest to humans. It integrates the studies of genetics, animal physiology, reproduction and microbiology. Animal production involves raising animals for the purpose of obtaining meat, fiber, milk or any other product. Animal health is studied within the discipline of veterinary medicine. It involves the management, treatment and prevention of animal diseases and injuries. Animal health is also a significant aspect of public health, since a number of diseases, known as zoonoses, can be transferred from animals to humans. Research in animal production and veterinary medicine transcends species boundaries and also works at human-animal interfaces such as food safety and ecosystem health. This book is compiled in such a manner, that it will provide in-depth knowledge about safety and risk management with respect to animal production and health. For all readers who are interested in these topics, the studies included herein will serve as an excellent guide to develop a comprehensive understanding.
