Egg deliveries shrinking when half the year has passed

235 900 tonnes of milk were delivered to dairies in June 2017, about 1 % less than in June 2016. Figure A shows variations in quantities since 2014. 59 000 tonnes of drinking milk, 8 300 tonnes of cream, 7 500 tonnes of cheese and 1 800 tonnes of butter were also produced in June.

In total, 30 900 cattle, of which 1 100 were calves, were slaughtered in June 2017. Their total slaughter weight was roughly 10 200 tonnes, which is more or less the same as in June 2016, but about 3 % less than in June 2015. This years’ trend of unusually large monthly variations in slaughter numbers appears to have subsided, at least for cattle slaughter. Figure B shows the developments in cattle slaughter since January 2014. While overall cattle slaughter was unchanged compared to previous June, the slaughter was smaller in the categories calves, cows and young cattle. Remaining categories saw an increased slaughter.

While it has subsided for cattle, the trend of unusually large fluctuations remains for pig slaughter. 209 100 pigs were slaughtered in June, with a total slaughter weight just short of 19 500 tonnes. When compared to June 2016, the slaughter of sows and young pigs decreased somewhat, but the slaughter of boars, young boars and fattening pigs increased. The developments in pig slaughter are illustrated in Figure C.  The slaughter of sheep, ram, and lamb was only slightly smaller in June 2017 than in June the previous year. 16 800 animals were slaughtered in June and their combined slaughter weight was 360 tonnes. Figure D shows how the total slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs has developed since 2014.

The amount of slaughtered poultry was almost 12 900 tonnes in June 2017, nearly 4 % more than in the same month of 2016. The slaughter of hens was considerably lower and the turkey slaughter was also lower than in June 2016. But roughly 96 % of the slaughtered amount of poultry consists of chicken, which was up 5 % compared to June 2016. Figure E shows how the total slaughter of poultry has developed since the year 2014.

Egg delivery statistics for the first six months of 2017 are now available. In June, the eggs delivered amounted to 9 100 tonnes. Compared to June 2016, it’s a decrease of 7 %. But, it is 7 % more than in June 2015. The developments in Egg deliveries are shown in Figure F.
