The slaughter distribution within the counties

In 12 of 21 counties, the total slaughter weight of pigs made up the majority of the total slaughter weight 2018. For remaining counties, cattle made up the largest share.

 

Size of the holdings

About 60 % of slaughtered cattle and pigs in 2018 came from holdings with more than 100 hectares of arable land. The second largest share of slaughtered pigs came from holdings with less than 2 hectares of arable land.

Holdings that sent animals to slaughter

In 2018, 73 % of holdings that sent animals to slaughter sent cattle. For pigs and sheep, the shares are 6 and 30 % respectively. A summation of the shares results in a figure exceeding 100 %, because holdings can hold multiple species.
