Animals. Ag Ed Environmental Education Series.
Tulloch, Rodney W.
Animals are the subject of the student resource unit which is to be used with high school vocational agriculture students. Animal housing and equipment, the first section, deals with controlled environment, energy requirements, esthetics, air, water, and noise. Animal waste and byproducts are covered in terms of Federal government program, some of which are reported. The public health and socioeconomic implications of animal waste disposal are described. Meat and poultry packing and dairy processing produce significant effluent. In discussing disease prevention by means of parasite and vector control, infectious diseases and their treatment are covered. Beneficial and harmful insects and their control are described. The importance of wild animals in terms of the damage they can do to agriculture and the land is significant, but the treatment of wildlife and social values are related. There is a 29-item bibliography. (MS)
