Agriculture - Māori farm livestock numbers 2018

Stats NZ


Averages are calculated on the number of farms that reported each type of animal.


‘Farm’ denotes one or more blocks of land, managed as a single operation, engaged in agricultural activity. Activities include livestock farming, horticulture, viticulture, nurseries, forestry, growing grain and seed crops, and land that could be used for these purposes.

Data calculation/treatment

Māori farms were identified by matching any Māori enterprise found from either the Business Register’s list of Māori authorities, the Business Operations Survey’s Māori business question, or through Poutama Trust with the Agriculture Production Survey.
