A good general guide however quite out-dated.

A nice over-view of general livestock management, however it has a dated look. Not only are the photos out dated some of the information especially regarding the laws concerning keeping livestock are dangerously behind the times. References to legal requirements should not be relied on. The book tends to cast a dubious shadow over the farming industry - with hauliers, autioneers and dealers coming under particular scrutiny. Naive considering the vast amounts of legislation actively enforced in this industry. However a nice introduction for those new to the industry.
