Moran et al., 2017. CSIRO Publishing
This recently published manual covers a wide range of topics primarily related to ensuring the sustainability of dairy production systems in tropical developing countries. This book is written for all the stakeholders in dairy production systems in the tropics, with an emphasis on South and East Asian countries. However they are equally relevant to tropical dairy
industries in Africa and Central America. In addition, it provides guidelines for the Best Management Practices (BMP) of large scale, more intensive dairy systems. While small holders are the major suppliers of milk in the tropics, numerous larger farms are becoming established throughout the tropics to satisfy the increasing local demands for fresh milk. Both types of farmers and their advisers will gain much from this manual and improve the productivity, welfare and milk quality from their dairy herds. Policy makers and senior management should also benefit from reading selected chapters.
