Livestock production, growth, and management are the primary concerns of collections in this subject category. Both the scientific and commercial aspects of raising animals for food or fur are represented, with themes ranging from breeding and nutrition to herd management and ranching enterprises. There is an emphasis on the California livestock industry, but some collections focus on Central and South American concerns.
