Essentially a veterinary surgeon, Eddie Straiton has always specialized in obstetrics. Appalled at the damage done by existing brute force calving methods, he pioneered caesarean section in 1945 Ð a technique now practised throughout the world. He followed this up with a study of natural bovine birth Ð about which little or no information existed. The results of this study and the techniques evolved from it form the basis of this book.

Now in its fifth edition, Calving the Cow & Care of the Calf features a concise, clear text built around a large number of specially taken photographs.
