Sheep Farming in the Wairau Valley, there was a time when there were more sheep than people in our country., but not any more, now there is more diversification down on the farms, new crops and new animals are being farmed. In the district the viticulture has taken over much of the sheep farming land. There is greater profit in grape growing and less work year round.
Paddocks full of sheep graze peacefully in their paddocks up the Wairau Valley in Marlborough.
At the shearing shed sheep await their turn to have their fleece removed.
