Natural Cattle Care

Pat Coleby


Also available at:

Natural Cattle Care encompasses every facet of farm management, from the mineral components of the soils cattle graze over, to issues of fencing, shelter and feed regimens. How you farm determines the health of your livestock. Natural Cattle Care is a comprehensive analysis of farming techniques that keep the health of the animal in mind. Pat Coleby brings a wealth of animal husbandry experience to bear in this analysis of many serious problems of contemporary farming practices, focusing in particular on how poor soils lead to mineral-deficient plants and ailing farm animals. Coleby provides system-level solutions and specific remedies for optimizing cattle health and productivity.

I love this book, keep giving it away to others and have to replace my copy. Such an excellent reference book for any rancher wanting to be proactive with so many common ailments.
