Another book I bought along with the cattle book was this one by the same author Pat Coleby -
Healthy Sheep Naturally. the book I bought is a second edition and like the cattle book is comprehensive, easy to read and easy to understand.
It takes a more natural approach towards sheep husbandry and covers such topics as;
- Origins and history of sheep in australia
- Wool, meat and milk production
- Feed requirements
- Poisonous plants and fodder trees
- Land management
- Management of sheep and so on.
Another very informative book and certainly in my humble opinion a good starting place for the beginner.
The book was written in 2000 and reprinted in 2002, 2003, 2006
The ISBN is 0643065245
