    ITEM#: 2551600

    John Pukite conceived of this book while working as a fisheries biologist in Alaska. He lives in Minnesota.

    In A Field Guide to Cows, John Pukite provides all the facts-so even the novice can identify and get to know America's fifty-two breeds of cattle. Every entry in this entertaining yet completely usable book features an illustration that highlights each breed's most easily identifiable traits, such as coloration pattern and body shape. The book includes a checklist of breeds so the die-hard cow watcher can keep track of sightings, a list of essential garb and gear for cow watching, a glossary of terms, a listing of breeder associations, and more. 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.


    Cow Facts

    • Great Information, Need Color Pictures
      Verified Purchase

      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.
