Abstract

This study is performed by studying seven livestock businesses in the agricultural sector. The focus of the essay has been put on the structures that limit and enable the lives of the farmers in this study. One of these major structures that affect everyday life is the gender structure and to this day the housewife role exists where the women are responsible for the home, family and domestic pets while the men are responsible for the production, machinery and the heavier tasks on the farm. This is grounded in the history and the development that agriculture has gone through, but also in the strong patriarchal power structure that exists in this industry. In this essay I also show how the life form analysis of Liselotte Jakobsen and the independent life form can not be fully applied to the farmer as he is not completely independent in his work. The livestock and the family are two of the things that affect the farmer, but these also include suppliers, weather and so forth. All these factors that in one way or the other affect the farmer in his daily life creates an individual stress, partly by the sheer amount of work at hand, but also the task of organizing the economy. An important factor in dealing with life on a farm is the possibility to reflect and discuss with other people. Through associations and social networks the farmers find a sounding board in everyday life. These parts that create necessities and limitations for the life as a livestock farmer creates the life form in which the farmers live. In the life form we find the norms that surround the individual and this creates the picture of "the good life" in which the individual lives and grants the farmer a greater will to live the life that livestock farming comes with.
