The increase in organic dairy production continued in 2015
Production of organic drinking milk increased by 19 % during 2015 compared with 2014. At the same time, production of acidified milk showed an increase by 38 % while production of organic cream increased by 72 %. Production of organic cheese was more than doubled.
The slaughter of organic cattle and sheep and lambs decreased slightly during 2015 compared with 2014. In 2015, 14 % of the total slaughtered cattle were reared on holdings applying organic production methods. This corresponds to 18 900 tonnes. In total, slaughterings of organic sheep and lambs were estimated to 1 100 tonnes in 2015. About 22 % of the sheep and lambs slaughtered were reared on holdings applying organic production methods.
During 2015 there was a large increase in slaughterings of organic pigs and broilers. For pigs the increase was estimated to 14 % and for broilers the increase was estimated to 50 %. However, the number of organic pigs and broilers is low in Sweden and as a consequence organic animal production is low. In 2015, only 2 % of the total slaughter of pigs and 0.4 % 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 almost 16 % of total egg production in 2015. Organic eggs delivered to wholesalers were estimated to 17 000 tonnes in 2015, an increase by 26 % compared with 2014.
