So many bits and pieces of information regarding raising cattle float around, particularly online, so it can be hard to figure out what is essential and what is mere window dressing. In this book, we bring all the essential aspects of cattle production together.
We cover the gamut of the wonders and responsibilities that await you in the bovine world. We give you basic information on how to find the best cattle, including descriptions of breeds, types of cattle, and places to buy them. And we provide you with all you need to know to get started housing and feeding your herd.
Of course, you also want to keep your animals healthy and content, so we provide you with a preventive health plan and clue you in to the possible illnesses your cattle may encounter and how to treat them. We also delve into many other aspects of cattle production: taking care of pregnant cows and baby calves, showing your animals, marketing your beef, and many more.
