U.S. slaughter numbers remain high

Published:  11 July, 2017

The week ended on June 24 proved to be another peak for U.S. slaughter, with the total figures keeping very close to those of the week before and just below the 639,000 head. The slightly lower numbers of steers (355,000 or 10,000 less than the week before), were compensated by an equal increase of heifers culled, at almost 161,000. Cows, at 110,000 head were slaughtered in almost the same numbers as the week before.
