Last year, United Kingdom pig slaughterings were their highest since 2002, at 9.8m head — up six percent on the previous year.

Scotland recorded the strongest growth, up 12 percent on the previous year. Northern Ireland was up five percent.

Official figures no longer cover sow slaughterings, but Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board estimates 250,000 culls were killed during 2011, 13 percent more than in 2010.
