Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...OF COUNTRIES. NUMBER OF SHEEP. Australia continued to lead the countries of the world in number of sheep with 85,000,000 in 1913, but close after Australia follows Argentina with 80,000,000. Drought is said to have reduced Australia's sheep to 72,000,000 in 1915. Asiatic and European Russia combined possess 77,000,000 sheep, including some goats, and the United States has about 50,000,000 sheep on farms and ranges (April 15). Next below the United States, among the 40 countries for which the record has been made, follow in order British South Africa with 36,000,000 sheep, the United Kingdom with 28,000,000, Uruguay with 26,000,000, and New Zealand with 25,000,000. France has over 16,000,000 sheep, Spain a little less than 16,000,000, Italy over 11,000,000, and Brazil somewhat less than 11,000,000 sheep. In recent years, or since about 1907 or 1908, sheep have absolutely increased in Argentina, Uruguay, and New Zealand--all countries of high importance--and have increased also in British East Africa, British South Africa, Bulgaria, possibly Chile, Madagascar, and possibly Servia. In a few other countries sheep are maintaining their numbers absolutely, and by far the most important of these is Asiatic Russia, where perhaps sheep are slightly increasing. In this list are Spain and Hungary, and, of less importance, Norway, possibly Greece, and possibly Roumania. The countries in which sheep are absolutely declining make a long list and include such countries of high importance as Australia, European Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Among the countries of less importance are Algeria and France, and among the countries of still lower consequence are Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, German East Africa, Germany, more
