Project Title: A qualitative approach to developing guidelines for employment of drystock farmers on dairy farms
This study is focused on improved mutual understanding between drystock and dairy farmers, around the issues regarding potential employment opportunities on dairy farms. It will examine the key drivers of drystock farmers’ beliefs and opinions that may be limiting uptake of paid employment in the dairy sector. Subsequent to this, the project aims to develop, through active collaboration between drystock and dairy farmers, a set of guidelines for full and part-time employment scenarios.
