In 2009-10, the value of total livestock slaughterings and other disposals decreased by 1% to $12.7 billion. However, the value of live cattle and calf exports rose by 9% to $717 million due to increased demand.

Increases in the average prices of sheep and lambs in 2009-10 offset the continued decline in slaughterings. The gross total value of sheep and lamb slaughterings and other disposals rose by 5% to $2.6 billion.

The gross total value of pig slaughterings and other disposals increased by 1% to $903 million, which was driven by a 1% increase in production levels in 2009-10.

The gross total value of poultry slaughterings fell by 4% to $1.8 billion in 2009-10, driven by decreased production combined with lower prices.
