Please note that the figures above are estimates derived from a probability survey conducted by Statistics Canada. This survey is designed to produce accurate livestock inventory information for the province as a whole. However, the accuracy of county and district estimates may suffer particularly when the level of farming activity in a given area is relatively small. Thus, a measure of caution is advised when using sub-provincial estimates
