In a preliminary study the factors that cause Mid-Wales farmers most stress were investigated in a convenience sample of farmers attending the Royal Welsh Show. The results showed that government policy, finance and time pressure were the factors that farmers found most stressful. Isolation consistently achieved the lowest rating of the stressors. These results are consistent with other British studies.
