Big increase in organic chicken production

Production of organic drinking milk increased by 4 % during 2016 compared with 2015. At the same time, production of acidified milk showed a decrease by 25 %. There was also a decrease in the production of organic cream and cheese.

The slaughter of organic cattle increased by 1 % to 19 100 tonnes in 2016. A little bit more than 14 % of the total slaughtered cattle were reared on holdings applying organic production methods. In total, the slaughter of organic sheep and lambs was estimated to 1 100 tonnes in 2016. This means that almost 23 % of the sheep and lambs slaughtered were reared on holdings applying organic production methods.

During 2016 there was an increase in the slaughter of organic pigs by 6 % to 4 800 tonnes. For broilers there was a large increase in production. The slaughter increased by 193 % to 1 500 tonnes. However, the number of organic pigs and broilers is low in Sweden and as a consequence slaughter of organic pigs and broilers is also low. In 2016, only 2 % of the total slaughter of pigs and 1 % of the slaughter of broilers came from animals reared on holdings applying organic production methods.

Organic egg production delivered to wholesalers had a share of 18 % of total egg production in 2016. Organic eggs delivered to wholesalers were estimated to 21 300 tonnes in 2016, an increase by 25 % compared with 2015.
