A Handbook to the Breeds of the WorldBook - 1991
Describes in detail nearly every variety and breed of cattle in the world, both domesticated and wild, including most of the newest breeds and many important extinct breeds. Following 19 pages of general introductory material, the breed entries are gathered in geographical sections according to the breed's country of origin. Each section has an introduction which sets the region's cattle in a cultural as well as an agricultural context. Animal illustrator Jack Tebbit painted the 40 color plates which illustrate in total about 250 breeds and wild species. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
