  Dannevirke

Dannevirke is the center of a rural district but, like all rural districts, the weather plays a big part in shaping each
year’s returns.The hinterland, once timber and bush clad were cleared, with a range of environments and soilt ypes now support dairy, deer, sheep and beef farming.

Today stock numbers have declined following summer droughts on the East Coast, although neighbouring districts to the north and south on the East Coast were more affected. Some farmers have de-stocked to ensure enough grass growth for their remaining progeny. While store stock has sold above recent averages, it has also meant high prices to buy in new stock. As Dannevirke is a rural center, a large number of people live on life-style blocks: enjoying a quiet life outside work hours in town, attending their smaller number of livestock.
