Systematic categorization of animal types, with the slice size illustrating the number of animals in livestock production units based on statistical numbers in Germany. Circles represent different levels: animal species (the inner circle), production branch (the middle circle), and animal type (the outer circle). Colors indicate the proportion of animals exclusively kept in stables (black, 100%) or on pasture (light grey, 0% in stable). Data were obtained from the Statistical Office of the EU (Eurostat) [61,62,63,64,65,66,67,68,69,70], Federal Statistical Office of Germany [34, 49, 54], Federal Office for Agriculture and Food [33, 55], Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture [56, 57], and personal communication with E.
