Unchanged slaughter of poultry compared to last year this far

The quantity of milk delivered to dairies in July 2016 was 239 100 tonnes.
Figure A shows the quantity of milk delivered to dairies month by month from 2013 to July 2016. The production of drinking milk was 63 000 tonnes in July, unchanged compared to July 2015. Cream production in January to July 2016 was 66 100 tonnes. That is 1 600 tonnes more than the same period 2015.

In July 2016 more than 27 900 adult cattle and almost 1 100 calves were slaughtered. The total weight of the slaughtered cattle was roughly 9 400 tonnes, which is markedly less than the same month of the previous year. Besides the peak in May, all the months of the year this far have shown a smaller slaughter of cattle than the corresponding months of 2014 and 2015. The slaughter of cattle since 2013 is illustrated by Figure B.

The slaughter of pigs in July, at 201 000 heads or 18 200 tonnes, was smaller than in the same month of 2015. Since April, when the slaughter was relatively high, it has gradually declined and is now lower than it has been in July of any of the recent years. Figure C shows how the slaughter of pigs has developed since the year 2013. The total slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs in July 2016 was 300 tonnes, somewhat less than in July of 2015 and 2014. Figure D shows how the total slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs has developed since the year 2013.

Poultry slaughter statistics are now available for June and July and in July it was roughly 12 500 tonnes. This amount is roughly the same as in 2015, but substantially greater than in July 2014. Chickens constitute almost 96 % of the total weight of slaughtered poultry. Figure E shows how the poultry slaughter has developed since January 2015.

Egg delivery statistics for July were not yet available at the date of publication, but they will be made accessible in the Board of Agriculture Database as soon as they are ready.
