This book contains key information for meat inspectors, health officers, vets and veterinary students about bovine meat, anatomy, diseases and health.
A sourcebook and revision guide on bovine anatomy, diseases and conditions.
This book forms part of a series that has been designed to provide a study aid for students undertaking red meat inspection and other courses where knowledge of bovine meat inspection is required such as those for Environmental Health Officers, veterinary degree students and official veterinarians. It is hoped that it may also provide information in a 'user friendly' format for abattoir owners and producers as to the nature of rejections recorded by inspectors.
This second edition has been augmented by more photographs and the addition of less common conditions and parasites that may be encountered in post mortem inspection.
Wherever possible, photographs illustrating anatomical features and conditions have been included, the later generally depicting severe examples of conditions. This is a conscious decision, arrived at by the author, after giving numerous lectures on meat inspection where he learnt that no two people would describe something the same way.
Ideal for students undertaking examinations in these areas and on red meat inspection. It is also a valuable reference for qualified official veterinary surgeons and meat inspectors within an abattoir.
