1069: Lowland Grazing Livestock

This paper is taken from the Rural Business Research report ‘Lowland Grazing Livestock Production in England, 2008/2009’ by Mark Fogerty, Richard Soffe and Keith Robbins.

Year of Publication2010

The majority of Lowland Grazing Livestock farms are small or part-time and, compared to other lowland farm types, produce the lowest incomes per farm, per hectare and per labour unit with an Average Farm Business Income (which includes the Single Farm Payment) of £18,507 in 2008/09 and 19% of farms making a loss. Organic farms made £4,661 per farm less than average largely because of higher fixed costs. .
