It's Not a Cow by Dr. Phil Bass

There are few things more disheartening than having someone else tell your story and getting it wrong. It's Not a Cow is the accurate, factual, scientific story of the miracle of cattle in food production written by a passionate real-life PhD animal scientist in an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand, and entertaining prose. The title is an allusion to the fact that most people in our industrialized society are not aware of how their food is grown or how it gets from where it is grown to them. Those who raise cattle for meat and milk have been overlooked and, at times, villainized for too long because their story--our story--has not been told correctly. This is that story.
