This report contains statistics on fully converted organic livestock in Sweden. The statistics cover livestock reared using organic production methods according to Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 of 28 June 2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91.
In 2014, 281 300 or 19 % of the cattle were converted to organic production methods, an increase by 56 % since 2009. 14 % of the dairy cows and 34 % of the suckler cows were converted to organic farming in 2014.
The number of fully converted sheep was 121 700 in 2014, an increase by 78 % since 2009. The share of organic sheep in relation to the total herd was 21 %.
In 2014, 900 000 or 14 % of the laying hens were fully converted to organic production methods. The number of organic laying hens has been steadily increasing since 2009 and, in total, the number has increased by 55 % since 2009.
When it comes to pigs and broilers the number of organic producers as well as the number of animals are very few compared with the total herd of animals and the number of converted pigs and broilers has been quite stable since 2009. The share of organic pigs in relation to the total herd was 1 % and for broilers it was even less.
