Statistics New Zealand says the figure has incerased each year since 2006, and means there are now more than 1.5 dairy cows for every New Zealander. “Compared with recently released population census figures over the same seven year period, the dairy cow population has grown over five times faster,” says spokesman Hamish Hill. While the increase over the last survey year ap- pears more modest than increases in the previous two survey years, longer-term growth has seen the dairy herd grow by about 27% since 2006. “If New Zealand’s human population had in- creased at the same rate there would now be more than five million Kiwis,” says Hamish. DECLINES Other livestock numbers showed slight declines More dairy cows for each Kiwi in 2013, again continuing long-term trends seen in recent years. For example, the number of sheep fell 358,000 from 2012, with the national flock now just under 31 million. Most arable crops had good yields due to the long dry summer. The yield per hectare for wheat and barley both increased 4% from 2012. The provisional figures are from the 2013 Agri- cultural Production Survey conducted in partner- ship with the Ministry for Primary Industries. Final results, including more detailed commen- tary and regional statistics, will be available in May.
