The number of holdings is decreasing

The number of holdings decreased from 72 609 in 2007 to 71 091 in 2010. In 2010, new thresholds were used for holdings to be included in the Swedish Farm Register. The main effect of the new thresholds was that the number of holdings with less than 2.1 hectares of arable land increased. The total number of holdings in 2010, using the same thresholds as in previous years, was 68 150.

Except the increase in the number of holdings with less than 2 hectares of arable land, the number of holdings also increased in the size-class 5.1 to 10.0 hectares and in the size-class 100.1 hectares and more.

The share of female holders is almost constant

The number of female holders in private firms was 10 136 in 2010, a small increase compared with 2007. The share of female holders showed a small increase but was almost at the same level as 2007, slightly more than 15 %. The number of limited companies and other type of legal persons increased during the same period.

Every fourth holder is 65 years or older

More than every fourth holder in agriculture were 65 years or older in 2010, which is an increase compared with 2007. Almost 20 % of the holders were 45 years or younger. The difference in age distribution between women and men was small, although the share of younger holders was somewhat higher for women than for men. Almost 23% of the women were 45 years or younger compared with 18 % of the men.
