There were 148 million pigs in the EU in 2018. Pigs represent the largest livestock category in the EU, before bovines (around 87 million heads). Again in 2018, almost three quarters of the EU’s pigs were being reared in six EU Member States: Spain (20.8 %), Germany (17.8 %), France (9.3 %), Denmark (8.5 %), the Netherlands (8.1 %) and Poland (7.4 %).
