Recently the supply situation of agricultural products has received increased attention due to a growing world population, the rising demand for animal products, an increased use of biomass for bioenergy production, highly volatile market for agricultural and food products and climate change, among other things. Therefore, a proper method to represent the total agricultural production is required. With this in mind, this paper provides an international comparative survey of procedures that aggregate agricultural production. In order to identify international best practices with regard to accounting agricultural production, monetary and physical aggregations to measure food supply are analysed. Based on the international comparison, we identify the Austrian feed database and the French model "Foresight feed" as advanced methodological approaches. © Copyright by Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Extensive structural changes have resulted in strong farm growth which has challenged the once dominant family-oriented business model in agriculture. The acquisition of suitable farm workers has, thus, gained importance for the future development of such farm enterprises. This is especially true for the labour-intensive dairy branch. On the basis of an empirical survey of 130 growth-oriented dairy operations in Germany, strategic and personnel management factors were determined which influence the successful acquisition of farm workers. © 2013, OGA-Osterreichische Gesellschaft fur Agrarokonomie.
