Event Details

All the stars are aligning for Hawke’s Bay sheep farmers with their industry returning more than $400 million into the region’s growing economy.

Hawke’s Bay, a top regional economy in New Zealand, has a booming primary sector, with sheep farming recognised as a standout performer for its lamb and mutton exports.

About 7000 jobs are directly related to on-farm, and the meat-processing sector in the region with an annual wages total of $345m.

Hawke’s Bay Primary Sector Professional of the Year Mark Harris says today’s sheep farmers are very sharp operators running a complex production system.
