About the Author

Paul H. Hemsworth is at the University of Melbourne. Grahame J. Coleman is at Monash University, Australia.


"...the trend to ever-larger livestock units seems set to continue, thus the importance of selecting, motivating and training people to work in such environments will increase. This book sets the framework for a professional approach to doing this and also outlines areas where further development is needed. As such, it usefully fills a gap in knowledge, and more importantly in current practice."-- (01/01/2012)
"The book should take position in the libraries of people involved in animal production and especially education and management of stockpersons."
