Fascinating cow trivia is interspersed throughout. Informative, amazing, and amusing, A Field Guide to Cows is the indispensable companion for would-be cow tippers, farmers, city folk, agriculturalists, interstate drivers, 4-H'ers, vacationing families, and everyone who likes to moo at cows.

    • Great Information, Need Color Pictures

      Would have liked it to have color pictures but it is very informative and a great price to boot. Purchased for a research product for my son about cows. There are not a whole lot of field guides to cows on the market and these are not the easiest things to find especially at a discounted price. Overall I am pleased with this product.
