Resumo


This research had as objective to describe the factors that motivate the family farmers of Alto Alegre / RS to remain or to give up of the milk activity. In order to carry out this diagnosis, semi-structured interviews were applied to seventeen family establishments in the District of Santa Lucía - Alto Alegre (including all remaining farmers who left the activity in the locality), of whom ten are active and seven have given up their milk activity. It can be concluded that the lack of successor was the main aspect found for the exit or demotivation of rural producers of the milk activity; while the monthly income provided by the activity was the main reason for staying in it.
