NZ – still has the most sheep per head of population

Here is a graphic from The Economist. Interesting to note that we still have the highest number of sheep per member of the population at 7.5. Also, although not on the graph, NZ has the second highest number of cows per person coming in at 2.3 with Urugauy taking the podium with 3.7 per person. Other statistics include:

– there are 19 billion chickens on the planet – 3 per person
– China has the highest number of chickens, sheep, and Pigs – the latter being very popular
– as you might expect most of the livestock is from the developing world
