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.
