FACTS AND FIGURES

&#8226 The North East region (Yorkshire, Northumberland, County Durham, Tyne and Wear and Cleveland) supports 21,000 holdings, a farm workforce of 51,000 and has a total of 1.67m hectares (4.13m acres) of farm land.

Cropping accounts for 0.7m hectares (1.7m acres) or 39% of land use. 49.5% of Yorkshires land, 0.5m hectares (1.2m acres), grows crops compared with 28%, 168,00ha (415,000 acres), in the other north eastern counties as a whole.

The regions main crop is cereals with 0.5m hectares (1.2m acres) grown. Oilseed rape takes up 85,700ha (211,000 acres) of the land area, potatoes 23,000ha (57,000 acres) and sugar beet 23,000 ha (56,000 acres).

Peas and beans are a key crop in Yorkshire with about 13,500ha (33,300 acres) drilled with pulses producing 30% of the total English crop.

Pigs contribute a significant slice of the regions agriculture with 2.2m spread across the region. Of the total for the region, 2m (90% of the NE total and 30% of the national herd) are based in East Yorks.

&#8226 Pigs and cropping are key features in Yorkshire but cattle and sheep dominate the other areas where 50.4% 0.3m hectares (0.7m acres) of the land is dedicated to beef and lamb production. In Yorkshire the proportion of the total land devoted to these industries is lower at 28.7% but the complete hectareage of grass, at 0.25m of pasture, is close to the total for the other counties. As a whole grass in the north-east region counties provides food for 5.1m sheep and lambs (25% of the English total) and a total of 1m cattle.

WHOS WHO

02 May 1997
WHOS WHO

tance out precisely while he was camped, for six days, within sight of the peak, waiting, hoping, for a break in the weather. It never came.Temperatures on Everest will be below freezing at base camp, dropping to below -26C(-20F) as he goes higher. Add to that the wind chill factor. Hardly T-shirt weather. Spring snow showers could be a problem. Theres the continual threat of avalanches – not to mention the danger of breakages, strains or altitude sickness. On many days, Chriss rucksack will weigh more than 30kg (67lb). At the very least, hell will come home 12.6kg (2st) lighter than when he left. “And remember, even if you get to the summit of a mountain, youre actually only half way there, because you have to come down as well. You cant stop concentrating for a second. You can only relax when youre back at base camp.” Yes, Chris is afraid. “I have fear because its Everest,” he says. “But my biggest fear is of failing.” With no way of getting in touch with his wife, Susan, and 19-year-old son, Matthew, it can be a time of loneliness. Keeping a diary helps. Its also useful material for the talks and slide shows he gives which raise money for charity. Last winter he was doing three a week, collecting 6000 in the process. One, in particular, he remembers was a farmers discussion group at Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria. Over 300 was raised that night. The months before departure for Everest on Mar 23 saw him intensify his training programme. Long-distance running, plus regular trips to the gym and the climbing wall have been high on the agenda. In the hills above Ripon, along the lanes, around the cricket field, Chris could be seen running. Stopping, only occasionally, in pubs. “For water, and nothing else,” he stresses. Not forgetting, of course, the day-to-day business of arable, potato and beef farming at the 240ha (600-acre) North End Farm at Baldersby. And it will be to his farm that Chriss thoughts keep returning as he tackles Everest. “Its great to get back from a trip and smell greenery.
