The states where there are more cows than people

The states where there are more cows than people

The map above shows the number of cows per person in each state. Texas has the most cows in total, with 10.9 million head, but South Dakota has 4.32 cows per capita, a higher proportion than any other state. As always, many thanks to Seth Kadish for the use of his map.
