The EU expects sheep consumption to decline by 1.6% in 202

Sheep production is expected to fall by 3% by 2020 in Europe. A reduction in the number of sheep in some key regions for production, stagnation in domestic demand, uncertainty about international trade and poor weather conditions in some countries have led to a reduction in production during this 2020.

In terms of consumption, the fall in sheepmeat production in the EU together with the fall in imports have led to lower product availability and led to a 4% drop in consumption, averaging 1%. , 3 kg / person by 2020 and is expected to be reduced by another 1.6% in 2021.
