 So many New Zealanders live their lives in the sheep industry. For 130 years, it was our most important agricultural industry. We have been called a nation of sheep because our reputation for high meat and wool production is well-founded.

New Zealand has over 4 million cows and produces 15 billion litres of milk each year. New Zealand mainly raises Holstein-Friesian, Jersey, and Ayrshire dairy cows with the recently developed KiwiCross breed. 

The main regions for dairy farming are Waikato, Taranaki, Southland, Northland, Horowhenua, Manawatu and Westland. Dairy farming in New Zealand mainly centres on grass-fed cattle by major companies.

Fonterra is owned by over 10,000 kiwi farmers and is supplying 95% of our milk. 

New Zealand is also well known for producing 100+ types of dairy products such as whole milk, cream, butter, cheese, milk powder and buttermilk.

Farming is a hard, physical job, which makes it a large part of New Zealand’s culture. Black Gumboots are an iconic symbol of New Zealand.

The typical outfit for farmers includes a black singlet and shorts and Wellington boots. This has also influenced the language – for example, the forest is called bush, hills are called razorbacks and valleys are called gullies.
