Ifac, the farming, food and agribusiness professional services firm, is encouraging farmers all across Ireland to have their say and complete its Irish Farm Report Survey.
Ifac’s Irish Farm Report combines the results of its farmer survey (over 2,000 Irish farmers in 2019) with a detailed analysis of emerging trends from the data of 22,000 sets of farm accounts.
John Donoghue, Chief Executive of ifac, said: “For the past 45 years, we have been invested in the lives, farms, and the futures of our clients and their families.”
Last year’s report, he added, uncovered many challenges facing the sector including that almost 40% of farmers were uncertain if they would still be farming in five years and 86% of farmers had no clear succession plan in place.
“We are repeating the survey to see if this picture has changed and to ensure we can continue to support and meet the evolving needs of our farming clients.”
Additionally, all participants who complete ifac’s Irish Farm Report Survey will be entered into a draw for a €500 One4All voucher.
