Excerpt from Farm Live Stock of Great Britain
The object of this volume is to lay before the student, in the shortest possible form, the many interesting facts about Farm Stock which ought to be known to every one who takes an interest in Agriculture.
The defect of most text-books on this subject is, that they are too voluminous, so filled up with much unnecessary book-makers padding that it is simply a waste of time to read them; or else they are incomplete or incorrect, too often the productions of men who have tried farming and failed to make it pay, and who suddenly became inspired to profess to teach that which they had not succeeded in carrying out in practice. The most skilful farmers are not usually of a literary turn of mind, and consequently much valuable information, the result of years of successful experience, is constantly being lost.
Coleman's "Cattle of Great Britain," and "Sheep and Pigs of Great Britain," also Sheldon's "Dairy Farming," are suitable books for those who want to go in for extensive reading in this subject.
