Where did your county rank? The ICBF has published a county-by-county breakdown containing the 2017 beef cow population figures.

The ICBF (Irish Cattle Breeding Federation) has published 2017 beef cow population figures, along with a county-by-county breakdown.

Counting 103,449 beef cows, Galway led the way as being the most heavily populated; this figure is over 25,000 higher than the second position which was acquired by Co. Mayo with 77,397 beef cows.

Co. Clare secured the third position with 72,335 beef cows, as Cork followed in hot pursuit with 70,001.

Bottom three

Casting an eye on the lower end of the population table, county Dublin reported the least amount of beef cows, with 4,087. The second least populated county was Louth with 10,343 beef cows, followed by Carlow with 16,339 beef cows.

Comparison

Evaluating the top four and bottom three, all of the counties in these groupings held the exact same positions in 2016 but reported smaller quantities in 2017, with Carlow and Louth displaying a slight increase.
