Livestock number down by 27.7 percent in Mongolia

ULAN BATOR, Dec. 24, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- Official statistics showed Friday the total number of livestock in Mongolia this year is 31.8 million, down 27.7 percent from 2009.

According to the annual livestock census report of Mongolia's National Statistical Office, Mongolia now has 1.8 million horses, 2.1 million heads of cattle, 265,000 camels, 14 million sheep and 13.5 million goats.

Last winter, 360,000 horses, 475,000 cattle, 11,700 camels, 5.2 million sheep and 6.1 million goats were killed by the "Zud" disaster in Mongolia.

The "Zud" is a weather occurrence characterized by extremely snowy winters where livestock are unable to find fodder through the snow cover, resulting in the death of large numbers of animals from starvation and the cold.
