Abstract

The ostrich is a relatively new agricultural animal in many parts of the world and even in South Africa it was domesticated only a little over a century ago. Recently however there has been a huge growth in interest in ostrich farming, and production of ostriches for low-fat meat and leather is now a reality in many parts of the world. This book is the first comprehensive volume to review the world scientific literature on ostrich biology, production and health:Written by leading authors from South Africa, Europe, Israel and the USA. Deals with the ostrich in farmed and natural environments. [CAB International]
