New Zealand has been a leader in grassland farming techniques since before the Second World War. The efficient use of grass as stock feed has combined to bring about a spectacular increase in cattle and sheep production. How this came about is an important part of the story P.W. Smallfield tells here. When he joined the New Zealand Department of Agriculture more than forty years ago, farming was still hampered by lack of scientific knowledge, by poor communications and remoteness from markets. When he retired from the position of Director-General, farming had become a highly-organised business.
