The Lasater Philosophy of Cattle Raising


By Laurence M. Lasater.

As son Laurence tells it in this book, Tom Lasater, a legend in the cattle business, recognized an ecological approach to cattle raising before the word ecology became popular. An all-time best-seller from Texas Western Press, The Lasater Philosophy of Cattle Raising is considered one of the preeminent books about cattle selection and livestock enterprise management.

Styles come and go, but Tom Lasater’s concepts endure. Their continuing presence helps us to understand the foundations of our work, to distinguish between passing fads and fundamental, unchanging ideas.

This 45th anniversary edition contains an informative Part Two, gleaned from Laurence’s speeches and writings, addressing additional challenges facing today’s cattle industry.
