Age Profile of Farmers

Table 4.1 shows the age profile of farmers in 2000 and 2007. There has been a decline in the number of farmers in the younger age categories over the period, with the proportion of farmers aged 44 or younger decreasing from 35% to 25%. However, Ireland has a higher percentage (7%) of farmers aged under 35 than the EU-27 average of 6%.
