Managing Breeds For A Secure Future Cost: $25  + S&H Copyright 2007 ALBC By D. Phillip Sponenberg & Donald E. Bixby The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy ISBN: 978-1-887316-07-1

BOOK REVIEW

RBC member Doug Law is a past Director and Swine Coordinator. He milks a herd of Canadienne Cattle near Guelph, ON., and is also a member of the Southern Ontario Heritage Livestock Club.

'When a farmer buys a new piece of equipment, an Operators Manual usually comes with it to explain how to operate it properly. "Managing Breeds For A Secure Future" is the Operators Manual for Rare Breeds. It is written from a scientific perspective, but in a way that the farming public can understand easily. Topics covered include:definition of a breed, standardised breeds and landraces, strategies for conservation, inbreeding, line breeding, upgrading. Even though the examples given to illustrate various concepts are drawn from the authors' vast experiences in the USA, there are no Canadian rare breed problems that are not dealt with; one needs only to substitute different breeds for the examples. A must-read for those interested in breeding Rare Breeds, as well as anyone interested in breeding livestock in general.' Doug Law.
