The fall in the total number of animals killed in September was accompanied by an increase in the proportion of female cattle,
which reached 45.4% of the total.
Although this is considered a worrisome level, the fact that this does not occur in a scenario of
slaughter growth, indicates that this increase in proportion is not indicating a tendency to liquidate female categories.
When separating females by category, cows showed a small setback and remained in 19.5% of the total; instead, the proportion
of heifers and calves increased: heifers 11.9% and calves 14.0%.
