Fewer Dairy Cows Culled In November vs. October

December 23, 2015 04:29 PM


Some 26,000 fewer dairy cows were sent to federally inspected plants in November than October, a decline of roughly 10%.  But, compared to year earlier numbers, culling was up 5.7%.

However, because each of these months had a different number of actual business days, culling per day in November 2015 was down 5.9% from October and 4.4% from November 2014.

Year to date, just over 100,000 more cows have been slaughtered in 2015 compared to last. That’s an increase of 3.9%.
