The article focuses on the results of a survey of farm manager's pay and conditions published by the Institute of Agricultural Management (IAgrM) in Great Britain. It notes that in 2007, managers received an average salary worth just below £40,000 annually. It cites that the IAgrM estimated there were nearly 5,000 employed farm managers in Great Britain. According to Will Gemmill, chairman of the IAgrM and consultant of Strutt & Parker, the findings of the survey reflected a shortage of good individuals in agriculture.
