A Yorkshire Dairy Farmer's Story from the 1930s to 2005

In the early 1930s Thomas Barker kept a couple of cows on his Yorkshire farm to provide milk for the family. His wife Hannah made butter by hand, packed it into her basket and took the bus to market in the nearby town of Northallerton. The farm had no electricity or mains water and power came from horses.

As soon as he was old enough to help, their son George learned to milk by hand. By the time he retired from his own dairy farm in 2005, George had reared a pedigree herd of 250 cattle with computers monitoring every stage of the 1.5 million litres of milk produced a year. One of the most prominent dairy farmers in the Northallerton area, George pioneered the use of technology and was one of the first to adopt Holsteins as the dairy cow of choice.
