Overall, there were 261 farm sales in the three months ended June 2020, compared to 258 farm sales for the three months ended May 2020 (+1.2%), and 322 farm sales for the three months ended June 2019. 1,154 farms were sold in the year to June 2020, 13.9% fewer than were sold in the year to June 2019, with 28.9% less Dairy farms, 19.2% less Grazing farms, 21.9% less Finishing farms and 7.7% more Arable farms sold over the same period.

The median price per hectare for all farms sold in the three months to June 2020 was $23,136 compared to $22,044 recorded for three months ended June 2019 (+5.0%). The median price per hectare decreased 0.4% compared to May 2020.
