TB restricted herds in the Irish Republic by county


Number of TB restricted herds in the Irish Republic by county

In the above graph the percentage of restricted herds was calculated by dividing the number of herds restricted since the start of the year by the number of herds in the county. This data was extracted from datasets downloaded from the References 1 and 2. All these datasets are archived in Reference 3. Data for the year 2004 was excluded. Such data was not thought to be consistent with the rest of the data in view of how herd numbers look odd. See Fig 78 below.
