|Review:||"The efficient functioning of the livestock sector, encompassing all facets of input supply, production, processing and marketing, is critical for food security and safety. This book draws on both extensive literature and experience in animal health economics and livestock issues in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. It provides comprehensive coverage of the history of livestock and animal health economics; theory and tools for the economics of animal health and production; a review of the application of economics to animal diseases and health problems; and worldwide examples of economic analysis and policy making. This book is an essential reference for livestock producers, agrobusiness personnel and policy makers involved in the livestock sector."--Jacket.
