According to data from the National Statistics Office of Malta, meat production in the third quarter amounted to 2,483 tonnes, a drop of 15.0 per cent over the comparative period last year. This was brought about by drops in the production of beef and pigmeat by 10.1 and 30.4 per cent respectively. On the other hand, an increase of
15.4 per cent was registered in the production of broilermeat.

During the period under review, the producer value of animals slaughtered at licensed slaughterhouses declined by €0.5 million (-9.1 per cent) to €5.1 million, when compared to the corresponding period in 2011. This was due to a decline in the producer value of slaughtered cattle and pigs by 7.2 and 21.4 per cent respectively. Conversely, an increase of 14.0 per cent was registered in the producer value of slaughtered broilers. During the quarter under review, the average carcass weight of slaughtered cattle and broilers rose by 5.5 and 2.0 per cent respectively. However, the average carcass weight in respect of slaughtered pigs decreased by 6.0 per cent
