Talks from the English counties
' Cattle at the Cross-Roads ' : fortnightly series of discussions on cattle-breeding. 1—'What do we want ? ' W. S. Mansfield , Director of the Cambridge University Farm, tries to answer the question, with the help of C. E. Harvey of Thorpe and Hugh Wylie of Rush Court
This series of discussions aims at elucidating problems of great urgency for the whole future of British animal husbandry. Three' years' intensive work has effected great improvements, but many farmers still have no long-term policy for their livestock.
W. J". Mansfield, with representative speakers from all over Britain, will attempt to -investigate the whole position. The talks, which have been designed to meet the needs of Farmers' Discussion Groups in the winter evenings, and will doubtless appeal also to Young Farmers' Clubs, aim at concentrating the attention of the farming community on the problems to be solved. They will have served their purpose if they broaden the perspective of discussion, and present the future of British cattle-breeding as a long-term biological problem involving not one but all departments of agricultural economy.
