|Abstract: ||This report presents a descriptive driver-and-response-based perspective at the family farm level. It
focuses on the impacts of and the response to external and internal stress factors over the last 40
years, drawing on interviews with farming families participating in ARGOS. A historic narrative
framework of a timeline (collaboratively designed by ARGOS researchers) was used to provide an
overview of farmers’ response and the context in which this should be seen.
The overall goal of this report was to explore key drivers of change in farm management among
sheep/beef farmers identified in their response to specified events (economic, climatic, etc.). This
was done following the main objectives listed below:
- To indentify key drivers of change mentioned by farmers over a time period between
1970 and 2010
- To identify farm management adjustments in response to identified key drivers over the
same time period
- To present an overview of drivers and response useful for further, more comprehensive
analysis of the interviews.|
