Waipa District, in New Zealand's North Island, has a resident population of around 40,000: this is fairly evenly mixed between urban and rural, with the main urban populations centered in the towns of Te Awamutu, Cambridge, Pirongia and Kihikihi. Because of the high proportion of elite soils, the District boasts a rich agricultural base that is dominated by dairy farming but also features sheep and beef, thoroughbred horse studs, deer farming and fruit production. The District hosts the largest annual agricultural exhibition of its kind in New Zealand, the National Agricultural Fieldays, which attracts visitors from all over the world.
