From broad acre cropping to horticultural production, livestock production and land use management, Australian farmers are amongst the most innovative and productive in the world. We have some 405 million hectares of land used for agriculture, carrying a combined total of over 100 million head of dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep and pigs and producing around 30 million tonnes of wheat per year.
