The paper showed analyzes the change of trends and determine the degree of the territorial polarization of the main kinds of animal production in Poland. To assess the degree of territorial polarization adopted to determine the angle of slope the line trend changes the attributes (a = tgα). The analysis shows that between the 2002-2004 and 2009-2011 years, was found significant deepening of regional differences in the intensity of cattle in Poland, and the territorial polarization stocking load of cattle amounted to more than 21°. The observed differences between regions in terms of the loads pigs are still big, but in the analyzed period were not worsened or rather there has been a small convergence (about 2.7°). The pigs stock in the period of 2002-2012 was reduced by almost 40%. Keeping this trend will affect the food security of the country but also on the level of employment and income of the rural population and the resources of natural fertilizers which are of great importance for soil fertility. Changes in cattle stock were quite small. In the analyzed period total cattle population increased by 4.4% while the cows stock decreased by 14.4%.
