This book traces the policies and scientific developments that have shaped New Zealand farming over the past 100 years.

It describes the establishment of the Department of Agriculture and its traditional role as farmers' advocate. The department became the present-day MAF with the addition of the fishing industry.

All the major events in farming in this country are described, from scab and the rabbit plague a century ago, to the grasslands revolution, the campaign against 'bush sickness', the impact on farming of World War II and the unique relationship of New Zealand with Britain after the war in the boom period for the industry.
