HC Deb 24 February 1965 vol 707 c98W
37. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the most recent information he has received from the agricultural colleges as to profitability per dairy cow; and how this compares with similar figures in 1956.

Mr. Willis

Sample surveys conducted by the three agricultural colleges suggest that for Scotland as a whole the average profitability per cow, before allowing for the manual work of the farmer and his wife, was about £25 14s. in the year to September, 1964 as compared with £33 12s. in 1955–56.
