De Lacy Executive were involved with the Farmers Weekly Salary Survey. This report shows the average wages of current positions in each region across the UK.
John Davies, director of De Lacy Executive, has said "Agriculture is the world's most important industry. To compete the UK needs well-educated, well-trained people who will readily adapt to changing demands. With this survey we hope to be able to contribute to the debate about how to attract, develop and retain these exciting people."
As a consequence the survey shows, on average, what salary each area of the country is receiving within the agricultural industry. This ranged from £20,250 in Yorkshire to £35,152 in East Anglia, for farm workers. However, the hourly rate ranged from £8.67 in the North East to £13.83 in the North West.
The survey also suggested that the average salary for a farm manager was around £33,378 and a farm worker receiving on average £20,000. Dairy farmers received the highest yearly salary (£25,637) compared to sheep farmers who receive approximately £23,082.
This survey produced some interesting results which reflect the current agricultural industry.
