In 2009-10 the gross value of total Australian agricultural production was $39.6 billion, a decrease of 5% (or $2.2 billion) from 2008-09.

The value of crops fell by 7% to $21.3 billion in 2009-10, with livestock products decreasing by 8% to $5.7 billion, driven mainly by a fall in the value of whole milk. Livestock slaughterings and other disposals fell by 1% to $12.7 billion, with decreases in the value of cattle and calves, and poultry more than offsetting the increases in value of sheep and lambs, pigs and goats.

Marketing costs accounted for $3.0 billion (or 8%) of the total gross value of agricultural production in 2009-10.
