Section 13 of the Live Stock Ordinance 1901 (Ordinance 6 of 1901) stated:
Every farmer shall, on or before the 31st day of May in every year, make and transmit to the Chief Inspector a return in Form 5 of the First Schedule hereto.
From the return for 1954-1955 they were furnished in accordance with Section 40 of the Live Stock Ordinance, Cap. 40. As well as separate printed returns from 1902 to 1981 the returns were also published in the Falkland Islands Gazette.

From 1901 to the return of 1970/71 they were entitled Annual Stock Returns and from the 1971/72 return their title changed to Farming Statistics.

The Archives does not hold a complete set of the separate annual stock returns/farming statistics. The returns are held under series R/AGR/FAR.

From the return for 2015-16 to present date the returns can be accessed on the Department of Agriculture’s website:
