Cattle Births Data

Cattle Births data 

The tables below detail calves born on the Isle of Man. They are separated into 2 groups; those born to a dam of a dairy breed and those born to a dam of a beef breed. 

The data will be updated regularly, but will always be 3 months behind due to the timescales involved in calf birth registrations.

Please note: From 01 January 2014, as part of the BVD Control Strategy, calves born dead have to be registered (this was not the case previously).
