Ostrich and emu farming started in the state in the late 1980s and peaked around 1994 with about 800 businesses. Prices for a breeding pair of birds reached as high as $100,000. However, by 1996, it became evident that a demand for ostrich meat was not developing. Many farms failed. Today around 100 ostrich and emu farmers remain.
