No matter if you're a neophyte in animal ownership or a seasoned farmer with years of experience, you'll leran something from these "how-to" books. Best of all, they are approved by the FAA, which menas you can feel good about handing them to your future farmer. --The Country Today

Product Description

A few head of cattle or a large herd, a small farm or vast ranch, dairy cows or beef: Whatever your circumstances or objective, if you want to raise cattle, this book tells you all you need to know. A primer for the new farmer and a refresher for the veteran, How to Raise Cattle guides readers through beef and dairy operations from beginning to end--from choosing the right breed to providing proper feed and shelter, and from the concerns of health care to the finer points of breeding and marketing.

Clearly written and illustrated with helpful examples, the book covers beef and dairy enterprises large and small, conventional and organic. It will prove the essential resource for todays cattle farmer.

From basic health issues to showing cattle at fairs, over 200 color photos accompanies basic details any would-be cattle owners will find invaluable. Rural library holdings or college-level collections strong in agricultural sciences will find it a top primer introducing the topic.

2.0 out of 5 stars How to Raise Cattle 12 Mar 2009
By Keith G. Fry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
How to Raise Cattle was of little help if you are not knowledgeable about farming. There was very little detail about how to care for and market cattle. The author just kept referring you to your county extension agent for further information.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too basic! 7 Jan 2009
By M. Hobbs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you know nothing about cows, this might be the book for you. If you have ever been around or helped raise cows this will be too basic.

2.0 out of 5 stars glossy pictures, useless information 18 July 2010
By Alan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Tries to cover too much ground with too little information. This book doesn't know if its about the economics of a beef operation or about how to care for cattle. The sections on fencing is a joke and there is absolutely nothing about how to manage the logistics of keeping a bull. There is too much information about AI if you just want to have someone do it, and too little to even consider doing it yourself.

If you want a coffee table book about cows, there are better ones, but the pictures are nice. I suppose if you live next door to a dairy or a farm, it might be nice "background reading" but it sure won't help when it comes to actually raising cattle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat useful to novices 13 Oct 2010
By Richard B. Taber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been around either dairy cows or beef cows for most of my life, and I found this book somewhat lacking in detail. "Cattle" are not "cattle"; they are either dairy cattle or they are beef cattle. There are serious worlds of difference between the two. Dairying is a full time job 365 days of the year; it may not be the same person doing all the work every day, but someone has to. Beef cattle are much easier for the part time farmer to manage; they don't need to be milked every day, and the capital investment is much smaller for beef than dairy. I found several pictorial errors in the book; sometimes captions were mislabelled as to referring to beef or dairy; in fact, on a second perusal, there are quite a few incorrectly labelled pictures. There are examples of dairy which are clearly beef, and vice versa. The editing for this book was not up to par. As many of the other reviews have stated, if you knew absolutely nothing about cattle you could look at this book and be given some information; most of the pictures themselves are fairly good quality. However, there are many other good books available which might better serve a person looking to get either into dairy, or beef.
