Prior to 2009, individual animal health offices had responsibility for tracking exports. Therefore, data prior to 2009 is not held centrally. The data for 2010 is limited as the introduction of a centralised team within Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories was gradual.
Data about whether the animal is being exported for rearing before slaughter are not collected, so the figures for slaughter have been included for completeness.
The figures are as follows.
|Animals||Total number of consignments||Number of animals for production/fattening||Total number of consignments||Number of animals for slaughter||Total number of consignments||Number of animals for breeding|
|Sheep and Goats||193||—||—||—||—||—|
