The residual (38 per cent) were partly let and partly farmed by their owners. With the recovery in grain prices from the mid-1890s one would expect there to have been a decline in the proportion let out but the opposite was the case. Between 1896 and 1900 some 47 per cent were let out in entirety; only 21 per cent farmed directly. However, there appears to have been a recovery thereafter.
