"Man Must Measure" - Jan Bonsma

In 2011, we recieved a copy of this old, but outstanding book about animal husbandry, environment, and fertility from Louis Dooley, a fellow Brahman breeder. Reading this book changed our entire outlook on where our priorities should be in our Brahman herd. Until 2020, this was a rare book find. To celebrate BRC's 1st anniversary, we completed a full reprint and digital upgrade of the book, and we are happy to share copies of it with fellow interested breeders at no cost. Simple request a copy and we will be happy to mail it to you.
