    A very comprehensive veterinary book for dairy farmers.. I would go as far as to regard it as the Bible.

    Great book to have at hand. Clear and concise, easy to understand.

    I am a veterinarian, and I found this book really good. Although it says in the title that is addressed to farmers, I would recommend it to every student of veterinary medicine, or even better to any recent graduate. One of the best books I have seen from the perspective of covering all aspects of bovine medicine.

    Excellent reference book for dairy cow health.
