"Much detailed information [for] the self-sufficient home-steader." — Library Journal
Owners of modest-sized rural properties who are considering raising small animals will find this book immensely practical. The clearly and enthusiastically written guide provides important advice on how much room and care animals will need; different breeds of animals available, their housing requirements, and equipment you can buy or build; how to manage and build up stock, control disease, and mix feed rations; how to "companion plant" in the barnyard; and many other subjects.
"If there is one book you should have if you are considering or have already begun raising small stock on your homestead, this is it." — Indianapolis News
