About this book

This text is one of four books providing a general view of the literature dealing with the different ways in which reproduction in the major farm animals can be controlled and manipulated. It is effectively an expanded and new edition of a previous work, "Controlled Breeding in Farm Animals" (Pergamon Press, 1983). Buffalo, goats, deer and camelids have also been added to the species covered in the series. This book concerns cattle and buffaloes.


"Provides ample information for increasing worldwide efficiency of cattle and buffalo production systems. The global perspectives and geographic identity of the many original contributions cited were impressive. . . . The author is to be commended for this remarkable assembly of new practical information. This extremely valuable resource is fairly priced and must reading' for veterinarians and others interested in cattle and buffalo reproduction." --Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association
