GRASSLAND FARMING IN NORTHLAND

J.D. Currie
1986 Proceedings of the New Zealand Grassland Association  
Dairying, sheep and beef farming have financed the regional growth and development of Northland this century. There are now well over a million dairy and beef cattle grazed in the nine counties of the North Auckland peninsula, and with sheep approaching 3 million, total farm gate sales from pastoral industries, last year, were close to $400m. Dairying continues as the predominant revenue earner, contributing two thirds of this total.
