Cows and Poultry in India: Their Care and Management

E B J (Author)

"This little book is a treasure of thorough practical knowledge of the subject. All scientific terms have been eschewed by the authoress who writes in a plain simple style that a child could understand, but the book is one that is written for children of large growth, and from its pages almost every thing in connection with the keeping of cows may be gleaned. Among the salient features of the work are: points to be considered in purchasing cows; food; milk and crea; how to make butter; calving, churning; bulls; management of cows when calving; complaints; Indian breeds of cows; and many other items germane to the subject in hand. The second part of the book deals with the "Management of Fowls in India". It gives a thorough knowledge about poultry: their care and management."
