Nutrition for breeding herds and flocks
"Good pasture is the natural feed for livestock. When good both as to quality and quantity it makes a most acceptable ration for breeding animals. Under ordinary circumstances, its cost is relatively low; its supply of food elements is complete and its general effect upon the digestive apparatus of the animal is highly beneficial. The farm equipped with good pastures is in a highly advantageous position so far as caring for a breeding herd or flock is concerned."--Page 1-2.
