Increased slaughterings of both cattle and pigs in august 2016 compared to august of earlier years

233 900 tonnes of milk were delivered to dairies in August 2016. Figure A shows how these quantities have varied from 2013 to August 2016. The pro-duction of drinking milk was 66 000 tonnes in August 2016, unchanged compared to August 2015. Compared to this point in 2015, yearly butter production has risen 10 % while milk powder production has shrunk 9 %. Apart from these categories, dairy production has changed little. See Table 2 for more details.

Nearly 36 700 adult cattle and 1 300 calves were slaughtered in August 2016. Compared to August of previous years, this is an unusually low number of calves. The total weight of the slaughtered cattle was roughly 12 300 tonnes. For most of the months this year, the slaughter numbers have been lower than corresponding months of previous years. But in May, and now August, the case has been the opposite. The slaughter of cattle since 2013 is illustrated by Figure B. A novelty for this edition of Animal Products is that the total slaughter of cattle, both adult and calves, is now summarized at the bottom of Table 3a. 

Approximately 222 000 pigs, with a weight of almost 20 100 tonnes, were slaughtered in August 2016. In terms of weight, this is an increase of 12 % compared to August 2015. Figure C shows how the slaughter of pigs has developed since the year 2013. The total slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs in August 2016 was about 500 tonnes. Figure D shows how the total slaughter of sheep, rams and lambs has developed since the year 2013.

About 13 600 tonnes of poultry were slaughtered in August 2016. There was an increase in both chickens, hens and turkeys compared to August 2015. Turkey slaughterings increased the most, by 24 %. 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 they are accessible. Please note that the market share for the Swedish Egg and  Poultry Association is estimated to have increased to 88 % in 2016, compared to 83 % in 2015. This explains a large part of the increase in egg deliveries to wholesalers.
