Cow Signals: A practical guide for dairy farm management
by Jan Hulsen
Cows send out signals continuously about their health, well-being, nutrition and production. The challenge for the dairy farmer is how to interpret these signals and use them. Dutch vet and cow enthusiast Jan Hulsen has drawn on his expertise and wide experience of cows and dairy farmers to write this book, a richly illustrated farmer's guide on how to interpret the behaviour, posture and physical characteristics of groups of cows and individual animals. This guide contains more than 250 pictures and illustrations that show how, where and why observations are made. The text can be searched easily using the index at the back. The format of the book will encourage the reader to graze through the book more than once, with new and interesting facts at each browsing.
