Cattle Grazing

Papua New Guinea imports most of its beef and milk. In 1900 there were about 250 cattle (bulmakau in tok Pisin) mainly brought in by German missionaries. Although the number had grown to about 30,000 by 1940, there was no real cattle industry before World War II.

Although the country's surface area is about 470,000 sq km, only about five per cent is considered suitable for high production graziing.
