Re: Agriculture in Surrey at the turn of the nineteenth century

You are welcome to sign up to LIBRAL and read the General View of Surrey, which I would recommend, too. To sign up, go to https://www.bahs.org.uk/LIBRAL/LIBRALsignup.html

Re: Apparatus for unloading hay

I admit that the Forum was unavailable for about a week, as a result of a change I made elsewhere to the web site. I had hoped that no one had noticed! Please accept my apologies.

Re: Smallholding

Also, filter for 'small' in the 'Find articles' in Agricultural History Review (BAHS site > Search > Find articles...). There are some articles about smallholding.

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.

There are also (onLIBRAL) two MAF bulletins called Rations for Livestock, and one is dated 1948.

Re: Derek Stuckey Feed Rationing Calculator

PS In fact, it is now the most recently added item, as I had to re-upload it because it hadn't been watermarked.

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

Re: Agricultural and Horticultural seed measures

I contacted the original poster and unfortunately it seems that the seed measures have recently been donated to E W Kings collection. Sorry!

Re: A building referred to as a Buck House

Hi Brendan
I am glad you have an answer to your question at last, and that you posted it on our forum.
Now we all know what a buck house was used for - it would be great if you could cite the source of this information.
Best wishes
