Book review

Excerpt from A Study of Farm Animals

To meet what was regarded as a real need in secondary schools and short courses, in 1912 the author prepared a book entitled "Beginnings in Animal Husbandry," the first text of its kind in this field of education, prepared for students below college grade. The reception given this volume by educators was very gratifying to the author. In the passing years, however, much new material has accumulated, and courses of study have been introduced that were not generally given in 1912, and for which no provisions were made in "Beginnings in Animal Husbandry." The author has, therefore, seen fit to prepare a new text, that should more fully meet present needs. It not only discusses the feeding, care, and management of animals with some detail, as applied to horses, cattle, sheep, swine, and poultry, but considers other subjects of present-day importance. These include community breeding, something about wool, boys' and girls' live-stock clubs, co-operative live-stock shipping, and culling the poultry flock. It also contains besides these, all the more important matter relative to breeding, the breeds, and judging, as set forth in the first text. "Beginnings in Animal Husbandry" consisted of 28 chapters, including 393 pages and 217 illustrations, while the present text contains 44 chapters, 540 pages and 256 illustrations.

In conclusion the author would quote the final sentence of the Foreword in "Beginnings in Animal Husbandry": "It is his earnest hope that such lessons as either teacher or pupil shall find within these pages, may result in a desire for yet wider knowledge of and a more sympathetic interest in, farm animals."
