The book has and EXCELLENT section on the health and wellness of your cow. I learned more than I would of ever imagined in this section of the book. There is a rather extensive section of book pertaining to dairy cows, which I read anyway and it was very informative.
The suggestions that were given in this book were very handy for an amatuer farmer such as myself. Would recommend for anyone buying/owning their cow!
Personally, I picked up this book for the dairy information, but actually found information within the beef chapters that applied to cattle management in general. (If you buy this book for the dairy or beef information exclusively, be sure to read the book in its entirety, rather than skip around.)
As another customer said, I wish Heather had been more detailed concerning nutrition. She's pretty general, discussing carbs and where they're found, for example, rather than giving you an idea of what cattle's daily diet might look like.
This book definitely has something to offer and is well worth looking into!
