Informative with educational, practical, useful information

Heather Smith Thomas has written a concise, yet thorough, guide to raising beef cattle that is useful to both the novice and the experienced cattle rancher.
As a breeder of purebred cattle, I found explanations and descriptions of techniques in this book that have been very helpful. The author not only describes "how-to," she also tells why and leaves no detail unexplained. Her style of writing and language is easily understood, and the book is arranged so that information is easy to find.
The forward, written by Baxter Black, is, of course, hilarious.
I highly recommend this book for anyone, experienced or not, who is interested in learning all about raising cattle.
