New Zealand wool is highly prized and we produce over 2,500 tonnes of high quality, strong wool fibre used in carpets and fabrics all over the word.
New Zealand lamb is a favourite of chefs and cooks the world over. Naturally and ethically raised, our lambs feed on lush pastures and are carefully bred and nurtured to produce a quality dining experience. We produce 8,800 tonnes of sheep meat every year.
Landcorp has made a significant investment in a sheep milking operation on the Central Plateau in the North Island. Now in its second season, the farm is milking 4000 specific milking breed ewes. Together with our joint venture partner we are building a premium, niche nutritional brand ‘Spring Sheep’ which launched this year. A domestic sheep milk gelato is expected on shelves in NZ late 2016.
