Samoa - Animal husbandry

Pigs and cattle form the bulk of the livestock. In 2001, pigs, which are common in the villages, were estimated to number 201,000 and cattle 28,000. A small number of cattle are kept for milk; the remainder are raised for beef. Nearly one-half of the cattle population is owned by WSTEC, the most progressive cattle breeder. Other livestock in 1998 included an estimated 7,000 donkeys and 3,000 horses. Meat production in 2001 was 5,100 tons, 75% of it pork.
