CROPPING. An operation now seldom performed. The practice of cropping the ears of animals, as it is confessedly useless, if not pernicious (in so far as it may occasion some imperfection in the conveyance of sound to the internal ear) may very well be dispensed with.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
