Review quotes

Keeping Livestock Healthy is a must for any serious livestock owner.” – Journal of the American Veterinary Association


“A major contribution to available farm veterinary literature.” – Small Farmer’s Journal


“Dr. Haynes’ book is not a do-it-yourself manual that gives directions for home treatment with no help on diagnosis.  In fact, it might have been entitled ‘Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Livestock Disease But Didn’t Know How or Whom to Ask.’  It’s a book that will be of value to any livestock owner.”  -- Doc Mettler, American Agriculturist


“…so admirable organized and indexed that its information is instantly available….  Whether your concern is strictly financial, simply sentimental, or both, you should find this book an absolute necessity in your livestock library.” –Farmstead Magazine (no longer in publication)


“[Keeping Livestock Healthy] emphasizes the importance of good care for livestock….  [It is] useful for professional livestock producers and backyard animal raisers alike.” – Farm Industry News


“…highly recommended to all livestock owners.” – Modern Veterinary Practice (not sure if this is still being published.  Might be in publication under a different name.)
