Dairy Farming Statistics in the UK

The request was successful.

Dear Agriculture and Rural Development,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

The number of Dairy Farms in the UK

The number of intensive Dairy Farms in the UK

The number of free range Dairy Farms in the UK

Yours faithfully,

Jessica Iddon

Agriculture and Rural Development

Dear Ms Iddon,
We thank you for your question of 10 October and apologise for the delay
in the reply.
Relevant data are available on the Eurostat website, as part of the
Agriculture Structure Survey. While classification is not operated on
distinguishing between "intensive dairy farming" and "free range dairy
farming", you can navigate through the database and identify the criteria
that best match your research.

You can access the database through the following path:
[1]http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/agricul... , and select
"Farm structure".
You will find elements relevant to your questions under the folders
"Overview – farm livestock", "Farm livestock and fodder crops" and "Farm
management and practices" (the latter for organic farming).
We hope this is of help for your research.

Best regards
