OF THE WEST RIDING OF
WITH OBSERVATIONS ON THE MEANS OF ITS IMPROVEMENT.
By Messrs. RENNIE, BROUN, AND SHIRREFF.
DRAWN UP FOR THE CONSIDERATION OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE AND
THE following valuable communication, respecting the present state of Husbandry in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and the means of its improvement, drawn up for the consideration of the Board of Agriculture, is now printed, merely for the purpose of its being circulated there, in order that every person interested in the welfare of that county, may have it in his power, to examine it fully, before it is published. It is therefore requested; that any remark, or additional observation, which may occur to the reader, 'on the perusal of i the following sheets, may be written on the margin, and transmitted to the Board of Agriculture, at its office in London, by whom the same shall be properly attended to; and when the returns are completed, an account will be drawn up, of the state of agriculture in the West Riding, from the information thus accumulated, which, it is believed, will be found greatly superior to any thing of the kind ever yet made public.
The Board has adopted the same plan, in regard to all the other counties in the united kingdom ; and, it is hardly necessary to add, will be happy to give every assistance in its power, to any person, who may be desirous of improving his breed of cattle, sheep, &c. or of trying any useful experiment in husbandry.
