Live Stock in Health and Disease - Part III - The Breeding and Management of Horses, Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Pigs, and Poultry - With Chapters on Dairy

Various

This is the third part of J. Prince-Sheldon's "Live Stock in Health and Disease", focusing on the breeding and management of horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, and poultry. It also contains chapters on dairy farming, as well as a section on related veterinary subjects. This comprehensive and profusely-illustrated handbook contains a wealth of timeless information related to cattle, as will be of considerable utility to farmers and others engaged in breeding, owning, and management of cattle for pleasure or profit. Contents include: "Shorthorns--Lincolnshire Red, Shorthorn Cattle, Herefords", "Devon--South Devons, Sussex, Red Polled, Longhorn, Welsh", "Aberdeen--Angus, Galloways, Highland, Ayrshires, Orkneys, and Shetlands", "Channel Island Breeds", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the care and management of cattle.
