Cattle and the Future of Beef-Production in England


WITH the advent of peace, British agriculture, still harassed and bewildered by the vagaries of a “control,” painful, like a tooth, in its going as in its coming, has entered upon a transition stage towards the establishment of a new equilibrium, the character of which must be a subject of anxious concern to all who believe that a prosperous and contented agriculture is the soundest basis upon which the national welfare can rest. At this juncture wise counsel is needed from those best qualified to give it, and it will find a more sympathetic hearing than was wont to be the case in the bygone days when farming was so generally looked upon more as a mode of life than as a complex industry of vital importance to the nation, and requiring the sympathetic and active support of the community.
