Rationale

Text available in

In Estonia the system of replacement of farmers at the time of holidays and incapacity for work does not exist. Working without holidays and rest days create stress and burn-out increasing unemployment in rural areas.

A replacement service will grant farmers - cattle-breeders and farm families equal opportunities with employers and employees of other fields of activity in terms of flexible organisation of rest and working time.

Replacement service can be financed according to national support schemes, eg European Union rural policy development guidelines and relevant Estonian legal acts, however, the structures for the application of the system have not been developed yet.

An innovative support service system is being developed for the benefit of farmers – cattle-breeders ensuring provision of a service of good quality and sound guarantees (insurance system).
The approach to training is innovative – farm work is practiced by shadowing farmers on their farms.

Innovative work organisation will developed to be applied by the service provider, incl processing and granting the provision of service and substitutes for farmers. Delivery of meetings and workshops by means of ICT, communication via internet and long-distance work are innovative working methods.

Farmers as potential users will participate in the development of the system, also, the project will learn from international experience. In a longer perspective an international network of replacement service will be set up.
