Financial losses in pork supply chain: a study of the pre-slaughter handling impacts

Abstract: Brazil is amongst the world's largest swine producers. However, its competitiveness has been vulnerable due to a lack of cooperation between the supply chain players. This condition makes the financial losses to be evaluated taking into account only an individual node, and most of the time, these damages are imputed by swine breeders. Living weight losses occur between the farm to slaughterhouses, and the main cause of these losses is the pre-slaughter handling, especially during animal transportation. In this… Show more

“…In the present study, the total average liveweight loss during transportation was 196.16 tons for the analyzed periods, which represents about 39.23 tons per month or even an estimated 470.78 tons per year. REIS et al (2015) studying occurrence of losses in pork supply chain in tropical conditions estimated a total of US$ 159,990.00 per year.…”

“…Transportation guidelines are used in developed countries (United States, Canada, and European Union) different from the scenario in undeveloped countries (BENCH et al, 2008;BRYER et al, 2011;EUROPEAN COMMISSION, 2011). In Brazil, a lack of good management in some links of the meat chain leads to economic losses (REIS et al, 2015) , 2012). However, the booklets for best practices in livestock management are solely recommendation for helping farmers on production and animal welfare issues.…”

“…Conforme demonstrado, o período pré-abate compreende uma complexa e importante etapa no bem-estar dos suínos, o qual está sujeito a perdas devido aos processos envolvidos, tanto qualitativas quanto quantitativas (ADZITEY, 2011;DOS REIS et al, 2015;. As perdas decorrentes do transporte são representadas por animais mortos no desembarque (DOA) e por animais que possuem incapacidade de se locomoverem devido a injurias (NAI) ou outras causas associadas, como o estresse, por exemplo (NANI) (PILCHER et al, 2011).…”

“…Similarmente, na mesma região do país, ao considerar transportes de 8.000 animais a cinco abatedouros distintos, prejuízos decorrentes das etapas pré-abate corresponderam a 3,08t de peso vivo por mês, ou 36,96t por ano (DOS REIS et al, 2015).…”
