An annual report that includes information on agriculture land, livestock and farm labour.

Key points

  • The number of sheep and lambs rose by 6 per cent to 9.5 million in the year since June 2012. This included increases in both the number of breeding ewes and the number of lambs.
  • The total number of cattle and calves fell by 2 per cent from the June 2012 figure. This was largely as result of a drop in the size of the beef herd. The size of the dairy herd remained largely unchanged over the past 12 months.
