Sir; With reference to your article 'Dairymen must be forced to engage' (The Grocer, 4 November, p58), you omitted to say that the report on 'The role of the farmer in the progressive food chain' by Mike Houghton of Andersons is the 2006 Dairy Crest Annual Fellowship Report for the Royal Agricultural College 100 Club.

This follows the 2005 report entitled 'The challenge facing the dairy industry' by Mark Taylor of Dairy Crest.

Copies of both reports are obtainable from Graham Webb, RAC College, Cirencester.
