FG Poll: Most respondents plan never to retire from farming

Published on 27 September 2013

This fall, we asked Progressive Forage Grower readers: Where do you see yourself in relation to the farm at age 65?

The majority of voters – 58.6 percent – said they don’t expect to ever retire from farm life, while 22.8 percent said they see themselves eventually retiring to farming from their off-farm jobs.

Another 17.9 percent of voters expect to become semi-retired. Only 0.7 percent see themselves as fully retired from farming by age 65.
