Hi

We all say that there are too many ag labs in our tree but we have to thrive on that and respect them really as they fed the country. They did back breaking work by bending down digging ditches, ploughing and weeding ditches and maintaining fields in all weathers from the simmering heat to the ice cold dark days of winter. Many were skilled and were given a cottage by their employer so were quite well looked after.
