The book was published back in 1985, not by underground samizdat, but by the state agricultural publishing house, with a huge (by the standards of Czechoslovakia) circulation of 65,000 copies.

Many of the unrecognized breeds are very monotypic, homogeneous and have an extensive breeding base. Continue reading
