Reliance on support payments varies by farm type

A chart shows the proportion of farms with farm income greater than zero, with and without support payments.

Around 71% of farms made a profit in 2019-20 when support payments are included. Without support this decreases to 28% of all farms.

With support payments there is less variation in the proportion of farms with income greater than zero (breaking even) between farm types. Without support far fewer livestock farm types make any profit, especially those in less favoured areas.
