The Authoritative Reference
With a PhD in Animal Science and more than forty-five years of experience as a practicing
veterinarian, Bob Sager gives ranchers, students, and extension agents the practical tips and scientific knowledge they need to raise healthy beef cattle.
Packed with facts, the Handbook includes chapters on the most crucial aspects of beef
calf health: gestational care; colostrum, feeding, and supplementation; scours and dehydration; pneumonia and BRD; and vaccination and preventive health.
Includes more than 90 full-color diagrams, figures, and tables that clarify key concepts,
plus a guide to performing field necropsies and a gallery of commonly-used products and tools.
