Key points

  • The number of sheep and lambs rose by 3 per cent to 9.7 million in June 2014. This was caused by a 10 per cent increase in the number of breeding ewes.
  • The number of dairy cattle rose by 6 per cent since June 2013. This was offset by small reductions in the numbers of beef cattle and younger cattle.
