Comprehensive, colorful and captivating, this definitive, in-depth guide offers detailed information about both common and heritage breeds. This attractive, at-a-glance reference covers 194 of North America's most significant breeds of cattle, goats and sheep.

From the large-rumped Karakul sheep to the wrinkled Fengjing pig, North America is home to an extraordinary array of livestock breeds. Increasingly, a rare breed renaissance celebrates heritage breeds for their contribution to biodiversity, adaptation to specific environments, curious appearance, or ability to produce singular meat, milk or fiber. At the same time, people continue to need up-to-date information about the major domestic breeds.

This indispensable reference showcases North American livestock breeds for what they truly are: fascinating, stunning and endlessly varied.
