There are approximately 33 million sheep in Wales.
One of the most important parts of the economy of Wales is sheep farming. It is estimated that there are more than 11 million sheep in Wales. Sheep farming accounts for ab…out 20 percent of the agricultural industry of Wales.
10.2 million says my geography teacher
8.9 million in 2013
Sheep outnumber people in Uruguay with a 3:1 ratio. The ratio of the cattle to humans is almost quite the same at 3.7:1.
Yes, despite popular opinion of the oppisite Yes, despite popular opinion of the opposite
it is said that there are 3 million people in New Zealand, and 60 million sheep. So the ratio there is 20/1. That is just for New Zealand. I dont think that there is that many… in china, america, and australia A2: The sheep to person ratio in New Zealand has dropped to 8 sheep per person for 2008 from a peak of 22 in some years between 1950 and 1990. This is due to many farmers changing to more lucrative production, with the exact change depending on the region. Some major changes have been to beef, wine grape growing and dairy.
Wales has a lot of upland pasture (mountainside slopes which are low enough for good grass, but not suitable for arable farming). Such pasture is not suitable for Cattle… (which prefer level fields) but makes excellent grazing for sheep. This is also the reason why Scotland and New Zealand are prime sheep areas.
In livestock operations (including sheep), efficiency of converting feed into muscle mass is critical for success of the farm. The feed to gain ratio is a unitless numbe…r that expresses how well an animal converts feed into mass. For example. If an animal has an average daily gain of 500g and consumes 600g of feed during this time, the feed to gain ratio (F:G) would be: 600g/500g = 1.2 This can be interpreted as the sheep needing 1.2 lbs (or kg, etc) of feed in order to gain 1 lb (or kg, etc) of weight. The lower the F:G ratio, the more efficient the pig (or animal) is at converting feed into mass. Typical F:G ratios for pigs range between 0.9 and 1.5, depending on life stage. A ratio above 1.5 typically indicates a poor producing pig. Depending on the institution, a ratio of gain to feed may be more often utilized. This too expresses feed efficiency, but as an inverse of the previous ratio. So the same pig who has an average daily gain of 600g and consumes 500g during that time period would have a G:F of: 500g/600g = 0.83 This is interpreted as the pig gaining 0.83 lb (or kg, etc) per 1 lb (or kg, etc). When using G:F to express efficiency, a higher number is more desirable.
yes more than Scotland
There are about 40 million sheep in New Zealand, and about 4 million people. The number of sheep is once again increasing, but it will be a long time, if ever, that it reach…es its historic high of about 80 million.
there are definitely more than 2000 sheep in Wales
There are about 2 sheep per human
