Animal Husbandry Regained: The Place of Farm Animals in Sustainable Agriculture

A new book by John Webster, Professor Emeritus at the University of Bristol, seeks to identify and explain the causes and contributors to current problems in animal husbandry, especially those related to 'factory farming', and advance arguments that may contribute to its successful re-orientation. 

The first part of this book outlines principles and arguments necessary to engage with current problems - depletion of natural resources and destruction of environment, animal welfare, food and health, fair trade and sharing resources. The second part presents a series of proposals for change and development in animal husbandry, both in the developed world and subsistence agriculture.
