QUESTION
We are developing water demand models and projections for Illinois counties.

We could really use some externally generated projections of livestock populations, ideally by county. We will use these to project future livestock water use.

We have some national projections of pigs/hogs, milk cows, and cattle from USDA that we can scale down to Illinois county-level. We have been unable to find ANY projections of sheep and horse populations.

Can you suggest any sources of population projections for any of these livestock types?

Thank you.
