5.6 Other livestock
Other livestock collected in the census consisted mainly of horses, deer, goats and camelids. The number of horses has increased by 35 per cent over the last ten years to 37,000, though with very few used for agricultural purposes. The number of farmed deer fell slightly in the first half of the decade, though has risen for each of the last three years to around 7,000 in June 2014. Data on camelids (alpacas, llamas, etc.) have been collected since 2010, with around 1,800 in 2014.
Income from other livestock and other livestock products, which also includes income from stud farms, game and honey, is estimated in TIFF at £31 million, though there is little data on the actual value of these produce.
