According to the provisonal information recently provided by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), during the first trimester of 2019 less pigs and cattle have been slaughtered in comparison with the same period in 2018. Therefore, between January and March 2019, 13.95 million pigs were slaughtered (home slaughterings included): some 617,950 animals less (-4.2%) than during the first trimester of 2018, and this, according to the analysts, was exclusively due to a reduced supply of pigs produced in Germany. The number of German pigs slaughtered was 13.05 million, this is, 614,300 animals less (-4.5%) than during the first trimester of 2018.

The number of pigs from EU member states fell by 898,700 animals (-0.4%), this continuing the trend seen in the last two years. The analysts point out that during the aforementioned period there was a slight increase in the pigs' carcass weight, so pork production 'only' dropped by 3.9%, reaching 1.33 million tonnes.
