Title: Growth and development with special reference to domestic animals XIII: The influence of certain geographical and historical conditions on the physical development of Lombardy, Brown-Swiss, Brittany, Dairy Shorthorn, Ayrshire, and beef shorthorn breeds of cattle
Author: Ashton, John, 1880-1952
Keywords: livestock
Date: 1930-05
Publisher: University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Agricultural Experiment Station
Series/Report no.: Research bulletin;141
Abstract: The author of this bulletin, long familiar with agricultural conditions in Europe, measured during 1925-6 a large number of growing cattle on the Continent and the British Isles. He has embodied the results in a dissertation for the Ph.D. degree, presented to the graduate school of the University of Missouri under the title of A Historical Investigation of Five European Breeds of Cattle with special Reference to the Influence of Environmental Factors on Growth and Development, Unfortunately it is not practicable to publish the enormous amount of numerical and descriptive material thus presented. So the writers of this note, under whose direction the research was carried, out, condensed the material to a volume more suitable for publication.
