I love the informative, down-to-earth advice that The Family Cow offers. I checked this book out of the library so many times that I decided it was an essential guide for our small farm to own. - S.R. MI
Wonderfully informative and well organized. I enjoyed the writing style of Dirk van Loon immensely. Can not wait to put those ideas to use when buying and keeping a cow a few years down the road. Thanks for a great book. -T.R. TX
