It was explained that the arrty intended releasing a considerable number of horses for the cultiva- tion of the land. Orders were placed for disc harrows to be worked by tractors and it was expected that ten Ford tractors would reach the county towards the end of the month. Dis- trict Committees would be asked to make arrangements for storage of implements on hire in the district- and some local ploughs were purchased to be used in connection with the Horse Ploughing Scheme.
