About this book

Jack has researched 41 of the breeds of cattle which you would be most likely to see grazing Britain's farms. They are presented here in a handy reference guide. For each animal, he gives a description of their appearance, a brief history and considers their uses today. In Know Your Cattle, each text is accompanied by a full page colour picture of the animals in their natural environments. Only the size of a postcard, Know Your Cattle fits into small hands or the rucksack or pocket of the interested rambler. It is the perfect gift for adults and children alike.
