And at the whim of the Factory...The problem with the lack of progress at Standen was not just their fault.
UK farmers demanded an even feed of beet to the factories.
I was shocked when I entered the industry late to find I was expected to deliver about 2 loads a week, tgus we did not want a machine capable of lifting hundreds of tonnes a day.
It was the way things were done according to the locals.
In Europe they cleared farms one at a time. Here you were expected to deliver your beet spread over the entire season.
