Dairy Herd Husbandry
By Ralph du Faur

A classic of New Zealand agricultural guides - and still unsurpassed as a source of sound basic common sense and advice.

Farm advisory consultant, lecturer and prolific agricultural author Ralph du Faur draws on his own extensive experience of the dairy industry to produce a comphrensive, practical book written specifically for New Zealand conditions.

He covers everthing from the rearing and management of dairy stock, through feeding and feed budgeting, to common diseases affecting dairy stock.

There are chapters on subjects such as: rearing heifers; pre-calving management; induced calving; early, mid and late-lactation management; mating; dairy hygene; nutritive value of feedstuffs; and stockmanship.

Yes, the dairy industry has changed a lot since this book was first published in 1981. But the tried and true age-old basic principles and techniques that du Faur explains in exhaustive detail remain much the same.

Both fascinating and informative, this is a classic of New Zealand agricultural publications.
