Farm Census

Information is on Number of Farms, Number of LFA Farms, Number of Non LFA Farms, Area Farmed (ha), Average SO/SGM (‘000) per farm, Crops (ha), Grass (ha), Number of Cattle, Number of Sheep, Number of Pigs, Number of Poultry, Number of Farmers, Number of self Employed, Number of Spouses, Number of Other Workers, Total Labour on Farms, Number of v. small/small/medium/large farms.

Note that all small area data relating to less than 5 farm businesses has been suppressed and replaced with the number '3' to prevent disclosure. Due to the small number of farms within Belfast areas all data based on farm businesses or people has also been supressed in order to avoid large amounts of secondary suppression.
