My Department collects data on slaughterings at approved slaughtering plants in accordance with the relevant price reporting regulations which are reported in aggregated format on the Department's website. The parameters for in-spec or QPS bonuses are derived from commercial agreements, which my Department has no role in developing or administering, and, therefore, this data is not monitored by my Department.
