Covers the entire period of preslaughter period and slaughter, and its effects on the welfare of multiple species destined for meat production.
‘Preslaughter handling and slaughter of meat animals’ is unique because it covers the entire period of preslaughter period and slaughter, and its effects on the welfare of multiple species destined for meat production.
Several chapters describe the current knowledge on all welfare topics from pre-transport preparation at the farm to stunning and slaughter, and the assessment of animal welfare and stress through physiological, behavioural and meat and carcass quality measures. Other chapters cover new and important topics, such as mobile slaughter and preslaughter handling, and slaughter of non-traditional meat species.
This unique and comprehensive work is written by internationally renowned experts and accomplished scientists in the field, who are engaged in active research laboratories and who have demonstrated their devotion to animal care and welfare. This work will be of interest and relevance to animal scientists, academics, students, animal welfare and industry associations, policy makers, veterinarians, livestock and poultry chain stakeholders, and all those involved in and who care about the humane handling of meat species.
