The United Kingdom (UK), based on a referendum, decided to leave the European Union (brexit). This event, which will fundamentally affect the development of the European Union economy and its members, was a reason to summarize and analyse the development of the UK agricultural indicators in comparison with the Czech Republic and with the agriculturally important European Union countries. In the UK, almost 10 million heads of cattle (11% of total EU), 4.8 million pigs (3% of total EU) and almost a quarter of EU sheep and goats (23 million and 23% of total EU) are kept. The EU-28 was an important foreign trade partner for the UK with 50% of the total foreign trade volume in 2018. Food products accounted for 4.3 and 5.9 % of total UK exports and imports, respectively.
