Data on the slaughter of animals in large slaughterhouses are collected with monthly reports sent by slaughterhouses. Data on the slaughter of animals in smaller slaughterhouses are acquired from the Administration of the Republic of Slovenia for Food Safety, Veterinary and Plant Protection (AFSVPP). Data on bovine slaughter are acquired from the Bovine Administrative Register (BAR), which is kept by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food (MAFF).
Monthly data for 2015 are provisional. With each First Release the data can be corrected and completed with new data. Final data for 2015 will be published by the end of February 2016.
