This is not a how-to book on raising cattle — it's a book on how the cattle business really works. At no other time in history has the commodity-priced cattle industry been more full of peril and risk for the unwary, or more ripe with profit potential for those who are informed and prepared. In this book, Allan Nation shares the knowledge he has gathered over the past 25 years about land & leases, taxes & finance, the cattle cycle, management, production, and more. In today's cattle market, knowledge separates the rich from the rest — this book will give you the knowledge you need to be a more successful beef producer. Copyright 2000, softcover, 332 pages.
