This fascinating work is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of all turkey and goose enthusiasts and historians of the breeds. Equally as valuable to an amateur turkey and goose keeper as to those in the agricultural industry its 166 pages contain a wealth of information and anecdote on a variety of aspects of poultry husbandry. It focuses mainly on commercial turkey-keeping and acts as a simple, practical guide to the everyday work of the turkey-farmer. Extensively illustrated with text and full page photographs. Contents Include: Turkey Section - Introductory Remarks; Turkey Rearing as an Important Sideline of General Farming; Suitable Breeds and Crosses; Selection of Breeding Stock; Housing and General Management; Natural and Artificial Incubation; Methods of Brooding and Rearing; Feeding from Day-old to Maturity; Marketing Methods; Diseases, Treatment and Prevention; Geese Section - General Remarks; Suitable Breeds and Crosses; Housing, Feeding and Management; Natural and Artificial Incubation; Rearing from Day-old to Maturity; Fattening and Marketing; Common Ailments; and an Index. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
