Succession, retirement and the nex-gen.

Interesting debate on Twitter earlier. Follow at #aggen. Had me thinking about the future for nex-gen farmers.

Should we be going for bigger farms and rely/or encourage the ‘older’ generation to retire.
Should larger farms be split up and smaller units become available for nex-gen to rent for a stepping stone into owning a farm.
Is it better to have large technology based farms, reliant upon big kit or smaller farms for more farmers

Interesting times ahead, and if the debate on Twitter is anything to go by we have some passionate nex-gen farmers ready to step in.
