    THE SOVIET PREMIER SPENT THREE-QUARTERS OF AN HOUR LONGER THAN SCHEDULED AT THE TALKS, AND THIS FORCED CANCELLATION OF A VISIT TO A FACTORY IN NORTH ZEALAND.

IT BROUGHT FORTH A STREAM OF COMPLIMENTS ON THE EXCELLENCE OF DANISH LIVESTOCK FROM MR KHRUSHCHEV, WHO ON THURSDAY TOOK DANISH FARMERS TO TASK FOR WHAT HE CLAIMED TO BE COMPLACENT METHODS OF FARMING.

    WHILST AT THE SHOW, HELD AT BELLAHOJ ON COPENHAGEN'S NORTHERN OUTSKIRTS, MR KHRUSHCHEV AGAIN DECLARED THAT RUSSIA AND DENMARK COULD USEFULLY CO-OPERATE IN AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS -- BUT HE DID NOT SAY SPECIFICALLY IN WHAT WAYS THEY MIGHT DO THIS.
