The American Cotswold Sheep Record: Pure Bred Cotswold Sheep Volume 1

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

This special re-print edition of the American Cotswold Association's book "The American Cotswold Sheep Record, Volume 1" contains contains historical information on Cotswold Sheep. Cotswold sheep are a breed of domestic sheep originating in the Cotswold hills of the southern midlands of England. It is a dual-use breed providing both meat and wool. By 1831, this breed had been introduced to the United States by Christopher Dunn of near Albany, New York. While Christopher Dunn imported only one Cotswold ram to cross with his English Leicester ewes. The resulting crosses were so impressive that they prompted William Henry Sotham (funded by the Hon. Erastus Corning, also of Albany) to make extensive imports of Cotswold sheep from the flock of William Hewer of Northleach, Gloucestershire, England. Like other longwool breeds, the Cotswold was often used for crossbreeding in early times. By 1914 over 760,000 had been recorded in the USA and Canada by the American Cotswold Record Association. The breed was seen as a way of adding staple length to other breeds while not reducing the size of the carcase or thickness of wool. Written in 1878, included are registration details of Cotswold Sheep flocks in the 1870's, leading rams and ewes, prizewinners of the day, breeder association activities and practical information on Cotswld Sheep. A treasure house of information for those interested in the history of the Cotswold Sheep. Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
