The article reports that land values in Dorset, England are breaking the £5,000/acre barrier according to David Cross of Savills who is planning to launch a 577-acre dairy and arable farm in Cranborne Chase. He states that the demand for chalkland farms has been very strong in 2007. He predicts that their buyer could be a dairy farmer due to the increase in milk price. He mentions that the dairy herd in the North Farm at Gussage Saint Michael was under tuberculosis (TB) restrictions.
