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.
