Clear increase in slaughter of all kinds of poultry

243 600 tonnes of milk were delivered to dairies in January 2017, somewhat less than in the first month of the two previous years. The production of drinking milk was 66 900 tonnes, which is also slightly less than in January of 2015 and 2016. The same can be said of other dairy products, with the exceptions of cream and butter production, which saw only marginal changes. 9 200 tonnes of cream and 1 300 tonnes of butter was produced in January. Figure A shows how these quantities have varied from 2014.

In total, 31 000 adult cattle and 1 200 calves were slaughtered in
January 2017. Their combined slaughter weight in January 2017 was 10 300 tonnes and it is shown in Figure
B. Compared to January 2016 there were now fewer calves but more bulls slaughtered. 11 000 bulls of all kinds were slaughtered in January, compared to 9 900 in January 2016. In January 2017 there were also 216 900 pigs slaughtered with a total slaughter weight of 20 700 tonnes and in terms of weight that is roughly 8 % more than in January 2016. Figure C shows how the slaughter of pigs has developed since the year 2014. The total slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs in January 2017 was about 300 tonnes, somewhat more than in January the year before. Figure D shows how the total slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs has developed since the year 2014.

The slaughter of poultry continued to increase and in January 2017 it reached  13 800 tonnes, which is 24 % more than in January 2016. This increase is visible both in the amount of hens and chickens, as well as in the amount of turkeys slaughtered. Figure E shows how the total slaughter of poultry has developed since the year 2015.

The egg delivery statistics for August 2016 were not yet available at the date of publication. They will be published in the Swedish Board of Agriculture Database as soon as possible. There has, however, been a recalculation of the market share of the Swedish Egg and Poultry association for the year 2016. The new share is slightly lower, dropping from 88 to 86.5 % for the year.
