Pathways into, and out of, farm ownership

Farm succession is an issue both for those wanting to enter the sector and farmers looking to exit. Many exiting the farm's day to day activities are looking for options which provide a reliable income whilst protecting their assets. On the other side younger farmers are struggling to get their foot on the ownership ladder having limited equity or opportunities. While various options do exist, the Red Meat industry lacks clear and simple guidelines to take farmers through the key steps.

The Red Meat Profit Partnership is undertaking a project to identify what support and resources farmers need, to make entry into or exit from farm ownership, a more straightforward process.

Your experience and thoughts would be hugely helpful and will assist in ensuring the support and resources developed meet farmer needs. Please take 5 minutes to complete the online survey no later than Friday, 13 th May 2016."
