We are delighted to launch the results of our independently commissioned research with farmers and farm workers on the outlook of external farm labour support in Ireland.
External labour is part of the life blood of Irish farming. Over more recent years its importance has grown significantly, but unfortunately here is tight supply of farm workers in the market to service the increasing demand. We wanted to address this issue and commissioned the most comprehensive analysis ever undertaken of the views of Irish farmers and farm operators on the topic of external farm labour. Taking the views of over 600 farmers and workers the results are eye opening – reaffirming many of the commonly held perceptions but also shedding light on many issues of note for the entire sector.
