Sheep & beef farm quintile analysis

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

Performance is ranked in five 20-percentile bands determined by EBITRm (earnings before interest, tax, rent and manager’s wage).

All data is sourced from the Beef + Lamb New Zealand sheep and beef farm survey, and forecasts. The reports are based on the 2020–21 final survey result. Provisional data is shown for 2020–21 and forecast data for 2022–23.
