"In the first part of this handbook, Derek Wallis relates the history of animal management [horses, ponies, sheep, cattle, goats and pigs] in Britain and explains how consecutive waves of invaders brought different strains of livestock to cross breed with native stock. ... In the second section the author examines the status of rare breeds today and considers their future role in farming practice.. The third section lists 70 or so rare breeds with a description and photograph of each plus notes on breeding capabilities, status, utility value and other points of interest."
