Cow slaughter increases and may peak in February

16/02/2017 - Cow slaughter increases and may peak in February

The slaughter of cows increased in February as a result of more competitive prices and increased supply of females compared with males, according to the Center for Advanced Studies in Applied Economics (Cepea), which forecasts that cow slaughter may peak this month.

"More cows are usually slaughtered when the price of calves falls, which has been seen in early 2017," said Cepea in a statement on Wednesday, February 15.

The ESALQ/Bovespa Nelore calf (8 to 12 months) indicator in Mato Grosso do Sul is down 15.3% so far this month, year on year. The beef cattle indicator in the state of São Paulo has fallen by 10.3%, according to Cepea.

Increased slaughter is also explained by the end of the reproductive period, in which farmers can tell which females will have calves and send those that are not pregnant for slaughter as a way to free up grazing areas.
