Re: BAHS winter conference 1970

Re: Apparatus for unloading hay

Re: Smallholding

Hi Smallholding
It would probably be useful if you could say when your family started the smallholding. There are lots of items that touch on (or are entirely about) smallholdings in our online library, LIBRAL, so that would be a good place to start.

Re: Derek Stuckey Feed Rationing Calculator

Hi Rachael
I've no idea whether this will help, but we have a publication on rationing in LIBRAL. It is called 'Departmental Committee on rationing of dairy cows: report'. You can find it in the All titles list. To sign up for LIBRAL, https://www.bahs.org.uk/LIBRAL.html
