A survey, launched in Wales and England by the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI), is trying to recognise how increasing farming challenges are impacting mental and physical well-being within the sector. RABI expects 26,000 responses from farmers for the Big Farming Survey.
The survey will close on 31 March 2021.
“RABI launches a survey to identify how farming challenges are impacting farmers' wellbeing.“
Alicia Chivers, CEO of RABI, stated: “RABI is acutely aware of the mounting pressures in the sector. To serve our community effectively we require a greater understanding of how these factors affect daily life, which is why we’ve launched the Big Farming Survey. It is vital that the voices of farming people are heard. It only takes fifteen minutes to complete the questionnaire and everyone who participates will be making an important contribution. Setting the ambitious goal of twenty-six thousand responses will ensure we can build the most comprehensive picture of life in agriculture today. The research will enable us to formulate more effective tools and support strategies to enhance farmer well being now and into the future.”
