The end of the year week is the exception to this rule. It will be split into two; the first part will end on December 31st and the second part will end the following Saturday. Each part will include its fraction of data in their respective year.

Product category

Slaughter volume

The slaughter data reported when the Prov-in code is the same as the Prov-from code (e.g Prov-in = 4 and Prov-from=4) represents the total slaughter volume that occurred in that province, regardless of origin.

In this case, slaughter figures for poultry originating from within a given province = A - (B+C) where;

  1. Total slaughter volume in the province (Prov-in code = Prov-from code AND Prov-in represents the province of interest, as detailed below)
  2. Slaughter volume from out of province production (Prov in code ≠ prov-from code AND Prov-in represents the province of interest, as detailed below)
  3. Slaughter volume of poultry imported from another country (Prov-from code = I)

Data Status

Below is a listing of all of the destination/origin codes. Some of the data is aggregated to protect confidentiality.
