Cattle directory featuring breeders of various types of cows, horses, sheep, and pigs. The publication is produced by C.H. Dana of West Lebanon, N.H., creator of "Dana's Cattle Labels" for tagging rather than branding one's animals. All breeders listed herein use said tags, and are located all across the country. The remainder of the volume is comprised of a breeder's diary to track animal mating; it is blank and unused in the present copy. An order blank for labels and punches is included (also blank and unused). A nice example of this ephemeral item.
