Survey to understand Farmer and Abattoir relationship

  • Survey to understand Farmer and Abattoir relationship
Interested or concerned about abattoirs, their falling number, increasing regionalisation and specialisation, or the reduction in services?

Abattoirs are the linchpin of the red meat supply chain. However, the number of abattoirs continues to fall and they are increasingly specialised.

Researchers at Newcastle University are exploring the implications of the changing structure of abattoir businesses on the livestock farmers who use their services.

They have designed a survey to better understand the business relationship between farmers and abattoirs.

If you are interested or concerned about abattoirs, their falling number, increasing regionalisation and specialisation, or the reduction in services available to your farm, please complete the survey which is available here.

Final report to be available in August.

If you are interested in hearing more about this project or have any questions please send an email with your enquiry and contact details.


Thank you for your interest and support
