    4. Great for learning about cattleMy wife and I are thinking of raising cattle after I get out of the service in a couple years. This book goes over nearly everything a beginner would need. Also, it is organized, especially the health section, like a reference book.

    5. Really good guide . All very helpful and practical. All the facts you really will need not just text book stuff. I use and refur to this one all the time
