The dataset has two GIS layers. The first layer is the potential farm by class and by region map in 2002. It is derived using sheep-beef farm class and region definitions from Meat and Wool Ltd and dairy region definitions from MAF. The second layer uses the first one as a base map to present the average (1990 to 2007) potential profitability (EBIT per ha) for being a farm of a certain class in a certain region.
