The Cattle Breeds ebook is a comprehensive guide to many varieties of cattle. This 71 page ebook includes descriptions of the ideal uses for each breed and their origins.

Cow breeds can be broken up into four purpose types: Beef (meat), Dairy, Draft, and Multi-Purpose (Beef-Draft, Dairy-Draft, Beef-Dairy and Beef-Dairy-Draft).

Domesticated cattle have long played a vital role in human society. Historically they have provided humans with a source of meat, milk, leather, transport, entertainment, have been used as currency and trade, and served a role in the religions of some cultures.

Researchers have established that all domesticated cows we have today can be traced back to a single herd of just 80 head -from this small herd have come over 800 recognised cattle breeds, ranging in characteristics and purpose.

Over thousands of years humans have selected and specifically bred cattle for different traits in order to have them perform a variety of roles. There are well over 1 billion domestic cattle in the world today.

It’s likely that livestock played an important role in the development of human civilisation in many areas around the world. The domestication of livestock such as cattle meant humans could set up more stable settlements instead of having to move around for hunting and gathering purposes.
