Small cattle breeds are manageable to control and care for, and perfect for lifestyle blocks and small farms. They can be bred commercially for beef but their docile temperaments and small size also make them especially suitable for hobby farms. In this Second Edition of her popular book, award-winning cattle breeder Margo Hayes provides practical and easy-to-understand information for people interested in keeping small cattle. The book assumes no prior experience with cattle, and covers all the basics to help you set up an enjoyable and viable small farm

Great complete book for someone starting out on a small farm
Well thought out and well organized. Each chapter takes you through part of the journey to understanding what it takes to run cattle on a small farm. Highly recommended.
This book was very informative and I have been able to obtain easy referencing material from it.
