The authors discuss dairy farming in Teesdale, England. They announce that the farm is yielding to the British Rural Payments Agency's wishes to remove suckler cows from the hills. They report severe reductions of cows born before August 1, 1996 and that there were only about 60 to 70 suckler cows in total. They explain that the reductions were partly due to the huge numbers of dairy farms getting out of milk given current milk prices.
