Poultry the only type of animal of which the slaughter increased in September 2017

219 800 tonnes of milk were delivered to dairies in September 2017, which is in line with September last year. The production of drinking milk in September was 65 000 tonnes. 8 900 tonnes of cream, 6 700 tonnes of cheese and 1000 tonnes of butter were also produced in September. Figure A shows the monthly milk quantities delivered since to January 2014.

A total of 36 800 cattle, of which 1 300 were calves, were slaughtered in September 2017. The total slaughter weight of cattle was 12 000 tonnes, which is 1 % less compared to September 2016. Male bovine animals age under 2 years was the only category with an increased slaughter weight compared to last year’s September listings. Developments in cattle slaughter can be seen in Figure B.

About 209 400 pigs were slaughtered in September, with a total slaughter weight of 19 200 tonnes. Compared to September 2016 the slaughter weight increased with 3 %. Figure C shows the developments in pigs slaughter from 2014. In the figure, one can note that pigs slaughter continues to vary between months and years.

In September the slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs were almost 32 800 animals, at a total slaughter weight of 650 tonnes. This is a 7 % decrease in comparison with September 2017 and a 11 % decrease compared to the September listings of 2015. In Figure D the developments in the slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs since January 2014 are shown.

The amount of slaughtered poultry in September was about 12 900 tonnes, nearly 6 % less than in the same month of 2016. The slaughter of turkeys and hens was unchanged, while the slaughter of chickens decreased with 7 %. The latter represents roughly 96 % of the total amount of slaughtered poultry. How the slaughter of poultry has developed can be seen in Figure E.

Egg delivery statistics for the year’s first three quarters are now available. In September the delivered eggs amounted to 10 000 tonnes. While it’s a 4 % decrease compared to September 2016, it’s a 17 % increase compared to September 2015.
