dc.description Citation: Phillbrook, Rufus M. The farmer and his stock, from a hygienic standpoint. Senior thesis, Kansas State Agricultural College, 1897.
dc.description.abstract Introduction: The cause and prevention of disease among domesticated animals is a subject that every man, who keeps and handles stock, should study and have well in hand that he may make the most out of it. Owing to the large number, and frequent occurrence of diseases of which domesticated animals are subject, it is to his interest from a financial as well as a humane standpoint, to have as little sickness and loss, as possible. If there be sickness or loss, there must be a cause for the disease effecting them and as a general thing there is a preventive in some shape, and it is this that every man, who wishes to raise his percentage of profit should study, and know how to apply. Every farmer is compelled to keep more or less stock. Some keep only what are essential to furnish them with motor power, to move their machines in the care, gathering, and transportation of their crops, or what is essential to their work.
