Co-operative involvement in British meat processing

Post by Declan O'Brien »

My name is Declan O'Brien and I am researching the impact of the beef processing industry on Irish farm policy.

The failure of farmer-owned co-operatives to survive in beef processing in Ireland during the 1970s and 1980s is noteworthy given that co-operatives were hugely successful in the dairy sector.

In order to introduce a comparative element to my research I was wodering if anyone knew of a good academic book or article which examines co-operative involvement in the beef processing industry in Britain in the second half of the 20th century.

Many thanks,
Declan O'Brien.
