Re: Tasmanian Farm
What is the main farming activities on Tasmania ?
Re: Tasmanian Farm
Hi Kerneels,

Our main farming here is mixed farming, comprising sheep (Merino breed mainly) for wool production, beef cattle (either selling calves as stores or actually finishing them themselves), sheep for fat / prime lamb production (British breeds & cross breds mostly) & cash cropping (irrigated & dryland).

We also have horticulture (stone fruit, wine, walnuts, green house crops), intensive animal production (poultry & pigs) & dairy farming (which is up there in importance with mixed farming).

Certain areas within the state specialise in different agriculture; the higher rainfall areas are more suited to beef finishing / fattening & dairying, while the drier areas are suited to fine wool production & seed production.

Very diverse agriculture in a land area the same size as Holland, with a population of less than 500,000 people.
