Lactilla Tends her Fav'rite Cow brings together issues of gender, class, and species through a study of a selection of poetry by five 18th-century British labouring-class women poets: Mary Collier, Mary Leaper, Elizabeth Hands, Ann Yearsley, and Janet Little.

Extending the feminist concept of 'interlocking oppressions' to include a consideration of the link between women and animals, this study suggests, eco-critically, that representations of nature are always more than mere imagination. By pairing labouring-class women poets and domesticated animals to read their representations as manifestations of oppression, Milne shows that both labouring-class women and animals are contained by conceptualisations and/or domesticating strategies that typically characterise them as labouring machines, as 'mad' and as pets.

Lactilla Tends her Fav'rite Cow benefits from the foundations set by earlier studies of labouring-class writers even as it extends their conclusions through the use of an explicitly eco-critical perspective.
