Summary

Holdings that requires full-time work reduces

The proportion of holdings in Sweden that require at least one full-time employment fell between 2003 and 2010. In 2003 almost a third of the country’s 68 000 holdings required one full-time job or more, while only a quarter of the holdings registered in the Swedish Farm Register (LBR) in 2010 called for an equal effort.

Holdings owned by a legal entity required at least one full-time employment to a greater extent than holdings owned by private persons, although the trend is similar for both forms of enterprise. Holdings owned by a legal entity has accounted for between 6.5 % and 7.8 % of all holdings during 2003 to 2010.


Holdings in animal husbandry requires most work
The most common type of farming that requires at least one full-time employment for the period were animal husbandry, and within that area dairy cows. Hardly any full-time holdings classifies as small farms, which is the most common type of farming in Sweden. This because a holding is classified as a small farm just because it requires less work.

Numbers of occupied and labor force in full-time farming
In 2003 nearly half (46%) of all persons occupied in farming were occupied in full-time holdings. The number of occupied in full-time holdings then decreased as the number of full-time holdings decreased. In 2010 only a third of all occupied were occupied in full-time holdings.
Despite reductions in employment more than half of all Annual Working Units (AWU=1 800 hours of work) were made in full-time holdings during the whole period, with a minimum level of 54 % in 2007.
