Like the title states this is another standard cranked out by the folks at GardenWay publishing, now don't get me wrong their information has been the staple for many a years and is still very useful today but this publishing house is not exactly known for their updating. Paula Simmons is a figurehead in her field and has some truely great advice and experience to give so listen to it folks even though it may be as old as your sheep's great grandsire. Defineltly a book anyone new to the livestock industry should have around for constant checking and even the occasional read through, I am a firm believer in information and research and so believe that even dated material is important. So if you are truely interested, buy this one for reference and keep building your library, do your own research develop a foundation of knowledge and no matter what your flock encounters you can overcome it and you can look happily out at your beautiful lambs one day and say with pride " I did it ".
