Global distribution of livestock populations

This visualisation shows the populations of livestock (pigs, sheep, goats, horses, cattle, chickens, and ducks) in each country. The data behind this map comes from the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) site which modelled livestock distribution around the world, filling gaps where census data is insufficient

This map shows the absolute number of animals derived from FAO's data and national census data.
