Sheep & beef farm quintile analysis

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

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

All data is taken from the Beef + Lamb New Zealand sheep and beef farm survey, and forecasts. The reports are based on the 2014–15 final survey result. Provisional data is shown for 2015–16 and forecast data for 2016–17.
