WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- In New Zealand there are twice as many cows as people, but it's the hobbits that are really making hay.

The change comes as the dairy industry struggles to recover from a slump in prices.

Statistics New Zealand said spending by international tourists was up by 20 percent in the year ending March when compared with the previous year. That follows a 17 percent rise the year before.

Income from dairy products has fallen by 22 percent over the past two years, the agency's figures show.

New Zealand is home to 4.7 million people and 10 million cows.
