Crisis hits New Zealand sheep farms

Droughts and storms leave the country’s sheep farming industry with the lowest lamb yield in nearly half a century.

The price of lamb has been hitting record highs around the world but, in New Zealand, sheep farmers say the industry is in crisis.

A series of droughts was followed by spring storms earlier this year, resulting in the country’s lowest lamb yield in nearly 50 years.
