Summary in English
The agricultural sector is continuously adapting to market demands, new innovations, regulatory changes, and trade opportunities and restrictions. Over the last thirty years, the average Canadian farm has grown larger and the number of farms has declined. Farm types have shifted, with a greater proportion of farmland now under arable production. National livestock numbers have declined, although the average head of livestock has increased on a per-farm basis, indicating an intensification and concentration of production.
