PROVISION OF SERVICES TO THE LIVESTOCK SECTOR: THE CASE OF ANIMAL HEALTH
Original hosted in "Organic.Edunet", contributed by Social Updater
Services that are important for livestock producers include the general infrastructure of public services, such as roads and other transport routes, water and electricity supplies, telecommunications, education and public health. This last overlaps with animal health services, which are of more specific relevance to livestock producers. Animal health services are conveniently subdivided into curative or clinical services, preventive services, supply of drugs and vaccines, veterinary public health aspects, education/extension and research and development. These last two areas of extension and research are also relevant for other non-health aspects of animal production.
