It consisted of 7.1 million exemplaries. However, the amount made to the cattle population in 2016. The news came from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA-FAS) in a report which also states that the production of meat will increase Mexico City 1.6% by weight. Just to encourage the growth of the cattle population, they will be imported especially suckler and milk cows, while heifers and bulls will be preserved. Slaughtering in line with the last two years: just under 6 million head. 2016 saw growing contributions from Canada with 3.1 million heads (+ 2.4%), with a stable calf and cow an increase of 1.7%. Heritage bovine stood in a positive area. In 2016 the animals brought to the slaughter in the European Union grew by 3.1% on an annual basis. In positive area all categories, with significant performance cow (+ 7%), heifer (+ 6.1%) and calves (+ 2.3%), while slightly decreasing is the request for the young bull (+ 0.8%).

The positive trend of the European slaughter is expected to grow in 2017.
