Cattle - Beef & Dairy | Don McMillan


This lavishly illustrated book is the first fully comprehensive guide to the cattle breeds of New Zealand, Australia and Great Britain. 

More than 75 breeds are covered, representing over 600 years of cattle breeding, from the medieval Chillingham (still found in England) to the recently developed Australian Lowline. 

Introduction to the history of cattle types, and features of cattle behaviour and anatomy. Individual cattle breeds are described in detail. 

Essential reading for anyone involved in cattle farming or breeding, more than just a reference work.

Very good second hand copy with dustjacket.
