This book comprises in a concise and systematic form, the essential facts relating to the science and practice of dairy farming. It embodies the author's twenty years' experience, both as a practical dairyman and as a student and teacher of dairy husbandry. Technical terms have been avoided as far as possible in order that the book may serve as a convenient handbook for farmers not versed in the sciences. The chapters of this book include: 'Dairy Farming a Profitable Business', 'Evolution of the Dairy Cow', 'Selection of Dairy Cows', 'Selection of Dairy Sires', 'Building Up a Dairy Herd', 'Feeding the Dairy Cow', 'Silos and Silage', 'Method of Keeping Herd Records', and much more. We are proud to republish this antique text here complete with a new introduction on cattle farming.
