Reviews

'This book remains the ultimate textbook on diseases of cattle in Australasia. The book will be an essential reference for cattle practitioners throughout New Zealand and Australia and will have applications in other countries where cattle are kept under similar conditions.' - Professor Emeritus Ivan Caple AM, University of Melbourne; 'Definitive is an easily overused word, but when a book takes a decade to reach press from conception, under the stewardship of such a highly regarded team of authors, there's a good chance that we are dealing with the facts of the matter. This is a fine example of what trans-Tasman collaboration can produce.' - Derek Johnson, Vetscript
