Synopsis: In this practical guide, Phyllis Hobson covers everything you need to know to successfully raise a calf for beef. Hobson offers expert advice on choosing a calf, housing and pasture, nutrition, routine maintenance, and medical care, as well as techniques for slaughtering and butchering. With just two acres of pastureland and about 20 minutes a day to devote to your animal, you can raise a calf and enjoy a freezer full of your own homegrown and delicious beef.

From the Back Cover: A freezer full of fine beef at half the cost (and much less than that if you raise the hay and grain too)? That's just one of the many rewards of raising your own beef calf!

The work involved in the calf's care? About 10 minutes morning and evening and 20 minutes of the weekend for stall cleaning. But it is every day.

To raise your own calf you need a simple but snug shelter for the first winter months, a little equipment, a stock of hay and calf starter feed, and later about two acres of land for pasture.

Raising a Calf for Beef, delightfully illustrated by Paula Savastano and Cathy Baker, assesses first the pros and cons of raising a beef calf. It tells what's needed, with detailed chapters on:

* Housing and pasture

* Feeds (milk and calf starter mixtures)

* Raising your own feed

* Choosing a calf

* Veterinarian help

* Caring for the newborn calf (what to do everyday)

* Weaning your calf

* A barn medicine chest

* Upsets you can treat and what to watch for

* Keeping records

* Fattening the calf

* Butchering time

* Your beef on the table

After you've raised your calf to 800 pounds -- or larger if you want -- off he goes for butchering and packaging. For those who want to do this themselves, a special section is included on slaughtering, butchering, and cutting beef for the freezer. Each step is illustrated with special drawings or photographs.

It you're interested in raising a beef calf, Phyllis Hobson's clear and unique guide will tell you all you need to know.
