About this book

Originally published in 1927, The Physiology of Reproduction in the Cow presents a comprehensive study of the reproductive processes of the cow from the perspective of 'the relatively new subject of agricultural science'. The study provides accounts of the breeding season, the oestrous cycle, pregnancy and sterility, all incorporating detailed scientific analysis. Illustrative figures and a bibliography are also included. The Physiology of Reproduction in the Cow will be of value to anyone with an interest in the development of agriculture and the history of science.
