MARCH KEY POINTS
This publication presents statistics on livestock slaughterings, meat production, whole milk intake by factories, market milk sales by factories, receivals of taxable wool by brokers and dealers, exports of live sheep and cattle and exports of fresh, chilled, frozen and processed meat. It also includes seasonally adjusted and trend estimates of slaughtering, meat production, whole milk intake and wool receivals. More detailed information can be obtained by contacting the Australian Bureau of Statistics or by referring to the monthly publication Livestock and Meat, Australia (cat. no. 7218.0.55.001).
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Final estimates for wool receivals for the March quarter 2011 are not yet available. These data, including updated seasonally adjusted and trend estimates, for the March quarter 2011 will be published in the coming weeks.
A coverage exercise has been undertaken to review the quality of the sampling frame for the Poultry and Game Birds Collection. Although the updated Poultry estimates will be reflective of the improved sampling frame, the frame updates have had a negligible impact on the associated time series.
CHANGES IN FUTURE ISSUES
The ABS is reviewing the way estimates are disseminated in Livestock Products, Australia (cat. no. 7215.0.). The aim of the review is to ensure information is communicated in a relevant and accessible manner. Further details will be available in forthcoming issues of this publication.
EFFECT OF QUEENSLAND FLOODS
Extensive flooding began in late December 2010 in Queensland and was more wide spread in both Queensland and other states in January 2011. Any impact on these estimates that is directly attributable to the floods cannot be determined.
