Sharp rise in sheep and cattle exports

Thu, 19 Jan 2017

The number of sheep and cattle being exported from the Isle of Man has risen sharply over the last 12 months.

In 2016, over 20,000 sheep were exported - more than double the 8,062 in 2015.

The number is also more than five times the amount exported during 2006, while the number of sheep used by Isle of Man Meats has dropped by over 20,000 in the last decade.

Cattle leaving the Island also jumped up last year, with over 4,600 exported - over 2,000 more than in 2015.
