First published in 1925, “Animal Genetics” is a vintage treatise on breeding animals, including fowl, sheep, pig, dog, horses, and cattle. Animal breeding is a branch of animal science that deals with evaluating the genetic value of livestock. The ability to select animals with superior EBV in growth rate, meat, milk, egg, or wool production has revolutionised livestock farming around the world, and this handy volume aims to present the livestock keeper with everything they might need to know. With a wealth of invaluable information and many handy tips, Animal Genetics” is not to be missed by those with a practical interest in breeding animals for profit or pleasure. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on farming.
