Agriculture is important in the Finnish economy: the country is self-sufficient in the main agricultural products, and 14.7% of the population are employed in agriculture. The number of farms has decreased dramatically since 1970. The structure of farming has changed: the traditional very versatile Finnish farm is being replaced by increased specialization in milk, beef, pork and egg production.
