A "Tim Tyne" for cattle?
« on: February 15, 2017, 07:38:50 pm »
Is there a comparable, comprehensive, friendly-but-not-patronising, book on keeping (hardy / traditional) cattle, in the same vein as Tim Tyne's wonderful book on sheep?

I have both the Valerie Porter books and think they're very good.


"Pressure and release" seems to be just as effective on cattle as on horses!
