"Of this vast output, Varro's only work to survive complete is one of his last, a three-book study entitled On Farming (De Re Rustica), written in dialogue form during his eightieth year ... The first book is devoted to agriculture, the second to cattle, and the third to smaller stock such as birds, bees, and fish. The style is unadorned, abrupt, and conversational. ... This monography may have been used by Virgil as a sourcebook for the Georgics." - Michael Grant; Greek and Latin Authors 800 BC - AD 1000; page 458.
