Additional information

The map shows that cattle had the highest share of the total livestock population in many regions in the year 2000. Trends are indicated for the regions where changes for the dominant class are larger than 10% of 1990 levels. Information on trends in Finland, Sweden and Austria and the new Bundeslander in Germany is not available. Livestock unit (LU): Livestock numbers are converted into livestock units using coefficients available from the Eurostat Concepts and Definitions Database (Eurostat, 2004). These coefficients are provided in IRENA No. 13 Cropping/livestock patterns.
