Explains that the combination of an ageing farm population, and significant barriers to the entry of new and young farmers, are common issues for the agricultural sectors of many developed countries. Examines the challenges and ownership culture of farms in New Zealand, Australia, North America, Japan, Northern Ireland, the UK, and Switzerland. Reviews the New Zealand succession culture and outlines succession options such as share milking, equity partnerships, and leasing.
