Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this article, the author examines from an individual actor perspective the change from mixed farming to mechanized dairying when Ireland joined the European Common Market. Labor-intensive mixed farming, in which small farm households supplied labor to the larger farms, predominated in the parish for a century prior to 1950. During that period, emigration eventually resulted in labor shortages. The change to mechanized dairy farming is interpreted as a rational choice made by farmers in response to the dwindling labor supply. Social relations in the community also changed, as farms became more competitive with each other and gaps in farm incomes and family status widened. Without the need for outside labor, farmers became more isolated and once neighborly ties dissolved.
