Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Practical Shepherd: A Complete Treatise on the Breeding, Management and Diseases of Sheep An attempt has been made in the following pages to give an impartial history of all the most valuable varieties and families of sheep in the United States, to explain the principles of breeding on which, their improvement rests, and to describe their proper treatment in health and sickness, under the different climatic and other circumstances to which they are necessarily subjected in a country as extensive as our own. Many of the topics of this work have been ably discussed, and are constantly being ably discussed in our Agricultural periodicals; but it is now eighteen years since the publication of the last elaborate American work which treats on them connectedly and with any considerable degree of fullness. It is fifteen years since the appearance of my own Sheep Husbandry in the South, which was confined to a portion of these subjects, and, in many instances, as the title would imply, to views and statements intended for local rather than general information. In the mean time, a great change - almost an entire revolution - has taken place in the character of American sheep, and in the systems of American sheep husbandry. The fine- wool families which existed here in 1845 have, under a train of circumstances which will be found recorded in this volume, mostly passed away; and they have been succeeded by a new family, developed in our own country, which calls for essentially different standards of breeding and modes of practical treatment. Our improved English, or, as they are often termed, mutton breeds of sheep, instead of being now confined to a few small, scattering flocks, have spread into every portion of our country, represent a large amount of agricultural capital, and throughout regions of considerable extent are more profitable than sheep kept specially for wool growing purposes. Some of the most valuable families of them were wholly unknown in this country - indeed, had scarcely been brought into general notice in England - fifteen years ago. And, finally, our advanced agricultural condition has created a new set of agricultural circumstances and interests which materially affect, and, in turn, are materially affected by, sheep husbandry, so that their reciprocal relations must be understood to lead to the highest measure of success in almost any department of farming.
