Constructed from the Rural Economies database (DDLU10025), the Land Use Rural Panel (LURP) database separates pasture land into dairy and sheep & beef land according to stock numbers. The original dataset determined stocking rates using an optimization procedure by Liang and Hendy. This revised dataset uses Livestock Improvement Corporation (LIC) stocking rates.
