Sheep & beef farm quintile analysis

These regional reports use quintile analysis to summarise and group key farm performance benchmarks.

Performance is ranked in five 20-percentile bands determined by farm profit per hectare (earnings before interest, tax and rent ("EBITR")).

All data is taken from the Beef + Lamb New Zealand sheep and beef farm survey, and forecasts. The reports are based on the 2015–16 final survey result. Provisional data is shown for 2016-17 and forecast data for 2017-18.
