Are there any helpful books for beginners? My husband and I (true beginners) would like to do more research before we actually get our feet wet. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks! :D

For real basics the book "A guide to raising beef cattle" by Heather Smith Thomas is very good.

Keep in mind that it is my opinion and probably different then most other peoples. But I'm sure you'll get more responses.

I've purchased several books..and agree with dun..the "A guide to raising beef cattle" is a very good book. Later you might look into some veternary books like "keeping livestock healthy" by Haynes/Storey Books. Good Luck, donna

Thank you everyone for your help. Hopefully, I can get hold of these books soon! Then I'll probably be posting more questions!
