The Formation Of Pure-Bred Flocks And Their Subsequent Management (eBook)
de Alfred Mansell
Sobre o livro
first published in 1901, this volume contains a detailed guide to forming and managing a pure-bred flock of sheep, with chapters on selection, mating, different breeds, rearing, and much more. Although old, the information contained within this book is timeless and will be of considerable utility to modern shepherds and farmers. Contents include: Main Flocks, The Most Suitable Breed, Foundation of Flock, Ear marking, Ear Tags for Live Stock, Subsequent Management, Shepherd, Selection of Sires, Line to Adopt in the Importation of Sires, Characteristics of a Good Ram, Management, Date for Putting Ram to Ewes, Mating, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
