Purpose of the survey

The Livestock Slaughtered Survey is conducted every quarter with businesses throughout Australia. This survey collects information on the total number of livestock slaughtered and the amount and value of meat produced, by category of livestock. Data from this survey contributes to the quarterly publication Livestock Products, Australia.

Your participation in this survey provides us with data that is essential for calculating Australia’s livestock slaughtered activity, which enable Australia's agriculture industry, businesses, governments and researchers to make informed decisions.

Thank you for your participation. We acknowledge and value your time and effort participating in this survey. It is only with the support of people like you that we can continue to produce these statistics that inform important decisions affecting Australia's agriculture industry.
