In animal outputs, prices have been collected for animals and animal outputs. Within animals, prices are collected for four categories of animals: cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry. These prices are based on live weight of animals. Within animal outputs, prices are collected for: milk, eggs and honey. All prices are calculated in Euros, while the units are in: kg, liter and pieces.
