Excerpt from the document:

“Who are these reports for and what is their purpose?
These reports provide an estimate of the distribution and size of the goat population at GB level. This type of population level information is often required in animal health and welfare policy work, to assess the economic or social impact of particular policies, for contingency, disease control and resource planning.

Who did this work?
The reports are produced by the Livestock Demographic Data Groups (LDDG). The LDDGs were formed in January 2014 and are made up of APHA representatives from data, epidemiology, species expert and GIS work groups.”
