Judging by this quiz: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/82711/countries-with-more-sheep-than-people

New Zealand is joined by Australia, Uruguay and Mongolia in that regard.

I think it's just small colonial populations came into possession of extensive land and started clearing it for cattle grazing.

Not surprised the African ones are the least guessed, there doesn't seem to be much of a pattern there. Chad, South Sudan and CAR are around a similar same area, but then Namibia joins the party 🤷

Fun quiz, thanks!

I think a possible pattern could be countries with low population density that are somewhat large, so they have enough room for ranching to be conducted.
