The Cat Breeder's Handbook, Breeding Cats
The Cat Breeder's Handbook, Breeding
Breeding domestic cats is a fascinating and satisfying labor. The wide diversity within the Cat Fancy enables the breeder to choose a breed that appeals to him or her in respect to size, appearance and/or temperament. From the tiny Singapura, the substantial and powerful Siberian, the hairless Sphynx, the graceful Siamese, the regally beautiful Bengal and the curly coated LaPerm, all are equally feline. It would be difficult for any feline enthusiast not to be able to find a cat, among the many recognized breeds, that did not fulfill his vision of the perfect one. While fascinating and satisfying, breeding cats also invites heartbreak and, therefore should not be entered into lightly. This book will help the prospective breeder, the new breeder and the seasoned breeder decide how to best meet the responsibilities of being a reputable breeder. The first edition of The Cat Breeder s Handbook was such a success, it only made sense to come out with a second edition. So much has been written about keeping and breeding cats, but never before has there been such a wonderful compilation of information from veterinarians, experts in the field, breeders, breed registries and many others. This much needed second edition embraces a comprehensive approach to the topic of cat breeding. The...

Game Bird Breeders Handbook: Commercial and Ornamental
Game Bird Breeders Handbook: Commercial and
Three of the most imminent researchers in the keeping, rearing, and nutritional studies of pheasant, quail, and partridge have combined their sixty years of experience to produce this handbook of aviculture. An indispensable tool. Upland game birds represent some of the most colorful and attractive birds in the world. Certain species of pheasants, quail, and partridges are raised for their economic importance as birds for sport shooting and as gourmet food items. Millions of these birds are harvested in the wild and on private shooting clubs. Privately owned game bird farms supply the birds that are released at shooting clubs. Some of these birds are also used for populating established or new game bird habitats. Exotic and rare species of game birds are also kept in special aviaries throughout the world, Most bird fanciers are interested only in maintaining exotics for their beauty, but some do recognize the importance of conserving the pure blood lines of species that are threatened by habitat destruction and uncontrolled hunting pressure. Many aspects of husbandry for domestic and exotic game birds are similar, yet there are important differences as to the amount of space needed for breeding stock, method of breeding (mass or pedigree mating), housing, nutrition, and egg c...

THE RASWAN INDEX AND HANDBOOK FOR ARABIAN BREEDERS Vols 1, 2 and 3
THE RASWAN INDEX AND HANDBOOK FOR ARABIAN BREEDERS
An essential index for Arabian Horse owners and breeders. Carl Reinhard Raswan was an authority on Arabian horses. He became an expert on the Arabian breed through his lengthy trips to the desert, where he lived with the Bedouins and learned their language and customs. Alice Payne wrote in The Arabian Horse News, 11/12/1966: "Carl, without a doubt in my opinion, had more influence on Arabian horse breeding than any man, living or dead. The part he played in saving the classic Arabian horse is well known in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. World politics did not chain him. He was equally known on both sides of the Iron Curtain. His knowledge was sought after all over the world. To the very end he was helping people world-wide in selecting animals, planning breeding and making importation. In the past he had been involved with the Brown, Dickenson and Kellogg importation into this country. In fact, he organized the Kellogg stud". The Raswan Index is a key element in the tracing of Arabian bloodlines. Since the Bedouins kept only oral records of the bloodlines, Raswan's work was the first time much of this information became widely available. In addition, Raswan studied the bloodlines carefully and provides a great deal of information about their effect on conformation, parti...
