Australia's Agricultural Industry
More and more young people are becoming a part of Australia’s agricultural industry and the role they play is integral. Recent research tells us they’re commonly entering the industry with more formal qualifications than their predecessors (in terms of tertiary or higher education qualifications), they’re willing to push the boundaries to find new ways of doing things, and they’re the ones that will keep working hard to maintain Australia’s $83.1 billion agricultural industry into the future.*
While that sounds healthy, key metrics on Australia’s farming industry are down across the board, with widespread drought, flooding, the growing cost of feed, disruptions to supply due to COVID implications and more making the business of farming even tougher. The total number of agricultural businesses are down 2%, and national poultry flock as well as cattle, sheep and pig herds are down as well. In fact, the national sheep flock reached its lowest level in more than 100 years last year.
