First published in 1928, this is a comprehensive guide to farming written by W. M. Tod and illustrated by Lucy Kemp-Welch. Originally intended for the general public, it offers would-be farmers instructions and hints on running a profitable farm, all written in simple, plain language for all to understand. Although old, much of the information contained within this handbook is timeless and will be of utility to modern farmers. Contents include: "Land and How to Choose It", "Manures", "Farming Never Ends", "Farm Labour", "The Farm Horse and Horse Sales", "Farm Machinery", "Markets", "Cattle", "Pedigree Stock", "The Milking Herd", "Sheep and Pigs", "The Agricultural Problem", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality addition complete with the original text and artwork.
