Treating Dairy Cows Naturally
by Hubert J. Karreman, V.M.D.

Drawing upon veterinary treatments from the days before synthetic pharmaceuticals, and tempering them with modern knowledge and clinical experience, Dr. Karreman bridges the world of natural treatments with life in the barn in a rational and easy to understand way. In describing treatments for common dairy cow diseases, he covers practical aspects of biologics, botanical medicines, homeopathic remedies, acupuncture and conventional medicine. By incorporating conservation principles, he also alerts us to the need of keeping our waterways clean — both for our health and the health of the cows. This book should serve as a useful reference for years to come. Hardcover, 412 pages, Item # 6672. $40.00 (plus s&h;)
