Cows and Catastrophes

The Flights and Fancies of a Cornish Dairy Farmer

By Brindley Hosken

Contributions by: Rory Walker

Cows and Catastrophes includes tales of author Brindley Hosken's 40 years of farming on the beautiful Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, where he has lived and worked for all his life. After 35 years of dairy farming, and in an increasingly challenging market, Brin made the difficult decision to sell his cows in 2010 and now contract rears dairy heifers. Most of the stories included here are humorous, some ask questions such as "What if I'm a Celebrity was set on a farm?", while others will inspire tears. Together, they are all thought-provoking. Including 32 specially commissioned illustrations by Rory Walker, this book will bring a wry smile to the faces of other farmers who will recognise situations that they too have been in. This book will also give readers who are not involved in farming an idea about what happens down farm lanes and in the patchwork of fields that they pass on their way to work each day. Readers will appreciate the tough job that farmers today face. [Subject: Dairy Farming, Agricultural Science, Farm Life]
