Additional information

It shows the regional concentrations of livestock linked to intensive pig and dairy production in the west of Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Brittany, northwest and northeast Spain, the Italian Po valley, Denmark, the west of the United Kingdom and southern Ireland. Poultry figures are part of the calculation of national gross nitrogen balances but not included in this graph. Adding poultry production would emphasize some regional livestock hot spots, for example in the Benelux region.
