Getting Started with Beef and Dairy Cattle by Heather Smith Thomas

Book Description

With every supermarket now featuring an "organic" section, the demand for organically-grown meat and dairy products has risen rapidly in recent years. Small farmers have taken note and many more beginners are considering cattle as a viable farm commodity. GETTING STARTED WITH BEEF & DAIRY CATTLE is the essential handbook for this growing audience. Heather Smith Thomas, a lifelong cattle rancher and author of several previous books for more experienced farmers, offers a succinct layperson's guide to the basics of raising a small herd of cattle, whether for meat or dairy products. She outlines both organic and natural farming methods, and covers all the information needed to get started and be successful. GETTING STARTED WITH BEEF & DAIRY CATTLE encourages new and beginner farmers to start small, and start right. Thomas explains as simply as possible the basics of selecting and raising a calf, along with feeding, shelter, and care guide-lines. She also covers breeding and calving, as well as tips for managing a herd throughout the seasons. There's basic health care information for preventing disease and addressing common ailments. For those raising beef cattle, Thomas offers guidelines for butchering; for those raising dairy cattle, there are step-by-step guidelines on milking. With a whole new generation returning to the farm who don't have a family history of farming, GETTING STARTED WITH BEEF & DAIRY CATTLE is a much-needed resource. Heather Smith Thomas has devoted her life to passing on the knowledge, understanding, and attitude necessary for becoming a successful farmer.
