Heather Smith Thomas
Every cattle farmer, from those that keep just an handful of livestock to those with large herds, will gain confidence and control by becoming more knowledgeable about calving.
Heather Smith Thomas covers every routine situation likely to arise before, during and after calving, plus details on pregnancy problems, difficult deliveries, when to call the vet and postpartum complications.
The second half of the book is dedicated to ensuring that every calf gets off to a healthy start. There is also a chapter on calf-hood illnesses explaining warning signs with useful tips on prevention and treatment.
