Baaa-dd idea?

If the government paid you per head of sheep in your pasture, how many sheep would you put in it? More than you should? More than was healthy or environmentally sound?

In New Zealand, where agriculture is a main source of income, farmers used to get 30% of their income from government subsidies. That all changed in the mid-1980s, when the subsidies were abolished. How did farmers manage? How did they become so competitive on the global market today?

Find out how New Zealandís sheep went from skinny to healthy!
