Changes in farm income according to farm type

An analysis of which farm types benefit and lose under the Health Check scenario in the EU15 in 2013 shows that farm incomes on horticultural, permanent cropping, pigs and poultry, and wine farms are hardly affected (Figure 15.6). The proportion of Direct Payments in farm income is rather small on these farm types. Grazing and milk farms have the highest proportion of benefiting farms (25-35%), mainly due to increased LFA payments. About one fifth of mixed and field cropping farms also experience an income increase. On the other hand, a considerable proportion of field crops, grazing, milk and mixed farms face an income decrease, varying from about one third for field crops and grazing farms to nearly 50% for milk and mixed farms. This average EU15 picture can by and large also be perceived in the individual member states. The Health Check scenario evidently results in a redistribution of funds within farm types rather than among farm types.
