40. Lieutenant-Colonel WEIGALL

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether consideration can be given to the establishment by the Government of demonstration dairy farms managed on purely commercial lines, as examples, both on intensive arable and extensive pasture lines?


The Board are establishing ten demonstration holdings managed on purely commercial lines as examples of intensive dairy farming on arable land. The Board are doubtful whether demonstrations of dairy farming on extensive pasture lines are necessary in present circumstances, but will consider my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion.
