Where Did We Go From Here?

W M (Harry) Young Fastprint

This is the second book in ‘Harry’ Young’s trilogy, following ‘My Lincolnshire Long Ago’.  He recalls events from the 50s and 60s that reflect the difficulties faced by farmers to adapt to the massive changes taking place in agriculture in that time.  The most significant being the invention of the tractor.  Other forms of mechanisation such as lorries rather than horse drawn vehicles and milking machines replacing hand milking cows along with the piping of water to rural areas made life easier.  As he became involved with the work of the National Farmers’ Union he gained insight into the legislation pertaining to agriculture and was invited to become a representative on the County Committee. 

Sadly the aftermath of an argument with an Ayrshire bull meant giving up farming and finding alternative, less physical, employment.  Harry initially became a milk recorder in Gloucestershire and that led to his joining the Farmers’ Group Trading which was to revolutionise the purchasing of goods by the farming community.
