With contributions from a number of specialists in their given field, "The Smallholder's Veterinary Handbook" covers all the animals you would usually find on smallholding, from bees to bovines. Acknowledging that smallholders are in the unique position of having time to both study and know their animals, their behaviour, their habits, likes and dislikes far better than farmers of larger herds or flocks, this book sets out to aid the diagnosis of disease so that the smallholder can take the necessary action quickly and thus avoid the spread of disease.

The book covers bees, bovines, sheep, goats, poultry, turkeys and pigs with contributions from Janice Houghton-Wallace, Paul Peacock, Carol Harris and Jayne Upton, amongst others. This is the only veterinary book in the UK aimed specifically at the smallholder and hobby farmer.It is eagerly anticipated and will receive considerable coverage in both "Smallholder" magazine and "Country Smallholding" as well as "Home Farmer" and various other trade publications.
