Pastoral farming plays a major role in New Zealand.  Pastoral farming (dairy, sheep, beef, wool) comprises 69% – more than two-thirds  of New Zealand's gross agricultural revenue. Most dairy and cattle farming in New Zealand is pastoral making farmers less dependent on grain feeding and the energy-intensive housing of animals during winter months.
