Cattle results have been obtained from the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine (DAFM) AIM system. The bull data was revised from June 2010 to June 2019 in September 2020. These revisions also resulted in changes to the cattle 1-2 years, male cattle 1-2 years, cattle 2 years and over and the male cattle 2 years and over categories.
Dairy cows are those kept principally to produce milk for human consumption. Bulls used for breeding purposes only.
Goat numbers have been obtained from DAFM's Sheep and Goat Census.
The regional composition is based on the new NUTS ((Nomenclature of Territorial Units) classification which came into effect on 1st January 2018 following an Amendment of the EU NUTS legislation.
