Number of cattle continues to decrease

The number of cattle has decreased during the recent years. Since the last census, which was performed in 2010, the number of cattle has decreased by more than 39,000 animals. The category heifers, bulls and steers constitutes the greatest part of this decrease. The category suckler cows is the only one which has increased since 1995.

Despite this, and the fact that the number of cattle holdings has decreased, the size of herd for cattle has increased. At the same time as the average size of herd has increased by 11 % or 8 animals, the number of holdings has decreased by 2,600 since 2010, when the last census was conducted.

The number of ewes and rams has increased by 48 % since 1999. The number of lambs has increased by 20 % during the same period. In total the number of sheep has increased by 12,000 since 2010. However the number of sheep was at the highest point in 2011 after which it has decreased. The number of sheep holdings is stable since 2010 and slightly lower than 2011 and the average herd size has increased. The average herd size for ewes and rams was 23.4 heads in 1999, in 2013 it was 32.6 heads.

Major increase in pigs herd size

The number of pigs decreased in 2013 which is a continuation of the steady downward trend since 1999. In total the number of pigs has decreased by more than 121,000 since the last census in 2010. Since 2012 where the number was estimated through a sample survey the number has increased with 35,500 animals. The number of breeders has decreased. The number of breeders of fattening pigs has fallen by 345 since 2010. The number has decreased by approximately 79 %, or 4,700 breeders, since 1999.
