Coronavirus (COVID-19) update.
SAC Consulting is contracted by RESAS to survey 500 Scottish farms annually to provide income estimates for the Scottish and UK governments, plus the European Commission (FADN). All farm types except specialist pig, poultry and horticultural farms are surveyed with data aggregated to ensure the confidentiality of the farmers that volunteer their figures. The data is integral to informing policy decision making and is used by economists in many government funded research programmes. In addition, the data is aggregated to provide benchmarks that are posted on the FAS website for use by farmers seeking to improve farm performance.

Update for Farmers participating in the Scottish Farm Business Survey
As Scotland emerges from the movement restrictions imposed on us all in recent months, we wish to assure participating farmers that when our staff visit your farm, they will take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of spreading coronavirus. We aim to protect both you, and your wider household, by implementing extra hygiene measures around data gathering, and adhering to the Scottish Government guidance on social distancing.
If you would like to know more about the survey, please contact Sascha Grierson.
