Cattle and sheep livestock numbers have fallen slightly over the past decade, while the numbers of pigs and goats have stabilised in the EU as a whole.

From 2008 to 2009 the number of cattle, pigs and sheep in the EU decreased by 0.7 %, 1.0 % and 2.3 % respectively, while the number of goats increased by 16.1 % in Member States with a significant herd.

From 2008 to 2009, meat production decreased faster than in the previous year for pig, adult cattle, sheep and goat. Since 1995, meat production in the EU-27 has fallen for adult cattle, sheep and goat while production of pigmeat has increased.

The weight of pigmeat produced rose rapidly between 1997 and 1999, dropped slightly between 1999 and 2001, then slowly picked up again until 2007 when a new maximum was registered, before falling in 2008 by 1 %.
