"Practical Cattle Farming" is written by two experienced, practising veterinarians, and covers the essential elements of beef and dairy cattle farming and the latest cutting-edge scientific research, and is therefore of value both to the novice and to those with experience.

The book examines the principles of beef and dairy production, and the husbandry of cattle from the newborn calf to adulthood; Explores the practical aspects of nutrition, housing, grazing and fertility management including the common problems, how these may be identified and corrected, and some of the economic factors that must be considered; Analyses the principles of disease prevention and control in order to maximize the success of the cattle unit; Outlines the factors that determine the welfare of the cattle and the relevant English laws.

The text is clearly written and includes helpful explanatory notes and detailed practical information.
