Why does the Torah see fit to state the total number of bulls (24), and (60) rams, he-goats and lambs of the Shelamim that the Nesi'im donated?


Targum Yonasan: The 24 bulls corresponded to the Mishmaros of Kehunah, the 60 rams to the age of Yitzchak when he bore Ya'akov, the 60 goats, to the sixty letters of Birkas Kohanim 1 and the 60 lambs to atone for the 60 Ribo (10,000) of men of Klal Yisrael.
