AGRICULTURE DISPLAY

The agriculture display

Exhibition number: Displays 7

For thousands of years, agriculture has been the most important industry in Ceredigion. The others were seafaring, lead mining and tourism.

This display illustrates the methods and implements used from about 1850 to 1930, when the gradual replacement of the horse by the tractor made great changes. Also, mixed farming has been largely replaced by livestock rearing.
