2nd Impression. [First Edition: Same Year] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “In this outspoken and fully-documented book a practical farmer and breeder of pedigree cattle discusses the shortcomings of the average English cow for low-cost milk production. It is submitted that the pedigree stock industry has neglected to supply the farmer adequately with sires which can be relied on to get efficient cows. Many aspects of the application of science to cattle husbandry are presented in simple language and constructive suggestions are made for public and private enterprise in stock improvement.”
