June Crops and Livestock Survey


Central Statistics Office (CSO)

Key information

The number of cattle, sheep and other livestock, the area under crops and pasture by region.

A Methods and Quality Report is available for this statistic.


The estimates for sheep and pigs are based on returns from the June sample survey of agricultural holdings and the June Pig Survey conducted by the CSO. The estimates for cattle and for crops are obtained from administrative data from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM).


Farms where the agricultural area used was at least 1 hectare are included in the June Agricultural Sample Survey. The Pig Survey is a census of the larger specialised pig farm (mostly intensive units).
