§ 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.
