Improved grassland management by John Frame (£34.00)Publisher: Farming Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0852362463]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs, tables and charts. From the cover: “In all its diverse forms, grass is the renewable foundation feed for ruminant production — the green gold of many rural regions and, indeed, countries. Competition for agricultural markets, intensifying in a world growing ever smaller, together with a host of economic and political pressures, requires swift and flexible response and adaptation from grassland farmers to the challenge of change and improved efficiency of use. Precision of inputs, predictability of outputs and profitability are triple objectives.

Against this background, this book subdivides grassland management into its interrelated components before dealing with utilisation by grazing and by hay/silage. The approach taken is the application to practice of basic scientific principles using mainly British and European grassland as examples. Nevertheless, the principles can be applied to grassland elsewhere in the temperate world. Management in relation to the new surge of interest in extensification, forage legume use, nature conservation and environmentally sustainable systems of animal production is also covered.

Written in a reader-friendly, advisory style, Improved Grassland Management is a book for grassland farmers, extension officers, students of agriculture and land use and plant scientists — in fact for everyone with an interest in Mother Earth’s green carpet.”

Planned Beef Production by Stephen Williams; C. David Edgar; (£18.00)Publisher: Crosby Lockwood & Son — 1966Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Ex-library with few marks. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a rough nearly closed tear to the leading edge of the lower panel. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THE production of beef cattle is complex and is becoming increasingly so. Technical changes have been applied to the once simple matter of having herds of breeding cattle in some places and yards of fattening bullocks in others. Sometimes they were on the same farm, but often there was a considerable distance between them and this was bridged by the cattle dealer and the store market. New concepts of breeding by artificial insemination led to the replacement of some dual-purpose cattle by some others. The reds and the roans became black and white, or just black; and the buffs are now making an appearance. Physical and chemical methods of dehorning have jostled with genetic advances in polling. Competition between the churn stand and the calf pen in a period of falling milk prices led to early weaning in its various guises and to the greater use of milk substitutes and the earlier feeding of concentrates. Multiple suckling, carefully supervised by expensive labour, has led to mass suckling with labour charges spread over more cattle. More recently there have been interesting developments with barley fed and battery beef with forage flowing untouched from silo to stock, a trickle of concentrates being fed on the way. The time has come for an appraisal of the multitude of methods in beef production and the many differing ideas regarding suitable breeds down to the introduction of the Charolais.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".
