Switzerland has a size of 41’285 square kilometres of which 36 % are farmland. As a large proportion of the farmland lies on the slopes of the Swiss Alps and Swiss Jurassic mountains, grassland and dairy production play a dominant role in Swiss agriculture. The agricultural area (seasonal pastures in the higher mountains excluded) is about 1 million hectares, 58 % of which is permanent grassland, only 38 % are arable, mainly concentrated in the Swiss plateau region between the Jura Mountains and the Alps (Agristat 2017).
