107 million large animal units in the European Union

, : 107 million large animal units in the European Union. Forderungsdienst 42(12): 371-374

EU data on national and regional livestock numbers, herd sizes and types and intensity of production are reported and discussed. Some 4.5 million farms keep livestock, of which 3.3 million have more than 20 large animal units (LU) and only 12 000 are large farms with more than 1000 LU per farm. Production is most intensive in Belgium and in the Netherlands with an intensity of 518 LU per 100 ha. Some 22% of the LU in the EU are pigs, though in Denmark this proportion rises to 55%.
