Great for learning about cattle

My wife and I are thinking of raising cattle after I get out of the service in a couple years. This book goes over nearly everything a beginner would need. Also, it is organized, especially the health section, like a reference book.

My bible for all things bovine. Indispensable for the whole process of pre during and post calving. Clear images and descriptions.
Written in the USA the images made me thoroughly grateful for farming in Cornwall - we don't have to deal with or dress for the blizzards and deep snow that the "models" obviously were when the photos where taken.

My dad and I both read this book before my dad got our cows. It showed him how to build shelter for cattle, how to feed them, how to care for them. . . if you like cows, or if you have cows, you've really gotta read this book!

Even if you don't have cows, it's still interesting!
