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