  • Description

    There is one horse for every 30 people in Poland, and these horses feed on millions of pounds of grain every year. Consequently, food prices - the cause of the recent troubles in Poland - keep rising.

    The Polish Government wants to combine the small farmers (who hold 80 per cent of the land) into co-operatives. This would enable the economical use of tractors on the land and thus make the horses redundant. But the farmers do not want co-operatives, and until the Government can offer a solution that will enable the farmers to keep their independence the horses will remain and the food prices will continue to rise.
