An unrecorded and attractively illustrated promotional for the dairy farming and stock raising industries in California during World War I. The text extolls the "never failing markets", the "climactic advantages," and the "rare combination of essentials" that make Monterey County ideal for raising animals not limited to cattle, also including hogs and goats. Photographic reproductions show scenes of feed agriculture, stock pens of cattle and horses, sheep herds, and several local edifices. The last section of text promotes Salinas Big Week and the California Rodeo, and final image depicts a bronco rider in action. Not in OCLC.
