In this book, Turner explains that livestock illness is a result of bad farming practices and that real livestock health begins with true natural farming disciplines such as composting, biodiverse pastures with deep-rooted forages and herbs, and subsoiling, as well as avoidance of supposed panaceas that ignore or marginalize these fundamentals, such as vaccines, antibiotics, pesticides, and artificial fertilizers. He teaches that the cornerstones of profitability are rooted in herd health, which in turn is rooted in soil fertility and animal nutrition, cattle breeding for better feed efficiency, and cattle breeding for longevity. Longevity, he holds, is the most critical factor for success in livestock breeding & production.
