Newsroom Special - Feeding the Nation through ‘Horsepower’
Wednesday, June 26th, 2019 - 6 minutes
Re-established in June 1939, months before the outbreak of WWII, the Women’s Land Army (WLA) filled the gap in the farming workforce that had been left vastly exposed during wartime preparation. At its peak it had more than 80,000 members, who worked closely with working horses to produce 70% of the country’s food.
International working animal charity SPANA (the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad) is celebrating this landmark 80th anniversary and the heroic efforts of WLA members.
To tell us more we were joined by CEO of SPANA, Geoffrey Dennis.
