The Basis of Linebreeding is the product of a lifetime of interest in linebreeding and the study of the work of the well-known Hereford breeding firm of Gudgell & Simpson who were masters of linebreeding. There are other books written by academics which are generally of a more technical nature and often of little value to the everyday breeder. This book is written considering the needs of the everyday breeder. It provides a simpler approach which deals with observation, explanation and illustration. The layman’s terminology used throughout should make this work understandable to any livestock breeder. Over the years this has become a classic book for the livestock breeder.
