For the first time, the Swedish Board of Agriculture has used the sheep and goat count made in December each year for registry purposes to make statistical estimates of the number of sheep, ewes, bags and lambs. Regular statistical surveys of the sheep population have already been made in June.
The number of sheep was estimated to
587 000 in June 2018, while this survey found them to number about 372 000
animals in December 2018. The main
difference is that the number of lambs has decreased as a natural result of most
lambs being born in spring and slaughtered during autumn.
In December 2018, the number of companies with sheep was about 1 000 fewer than in June 2018. In total, the number of companies with sheep was estimated to be 8 143 in December 2018 where in principle all had ewes and rams while about half had lambs.
