ANIMAL DISPOSITION REPORTING SYSTEM (ADRS)

The Animal Disposition Reporting System (ADRS) contains slaughter totals and disposition summaries for federally inspected livestock and poultry slaughter establishments. Each animal carcass is inspected for diseases and other conditions, which if present, may result in the animal being condemned as unfit for human consumption. If a carcass is condemned, the reason for condemnation, also referred to as the disposition, is recorded in the ADRS data base.

Livestock and poultry are divided into the following major subgroups for reporting purposes:

  • Livestock: Cattle, calves, swine, sheep, goats, equine, and other.

  • Poultry: Chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, capons, rabbits1, and other

Calendar Year Data. Although ADRS data is collected on a fiscal year basis (October 1 through September 30), FSIS does receive requests for data on a calendar year basis. This area contains summary data on livestock and poultry slaughter totals by calendar year.

Fiscal Year Data. This page contains summary data on livestock and poultry slaughter and disposition totals by fiscal year.

1 Because rabbits and poultry are nearly the same size, it is common practice to slaughter rabbits in poultry establishments. Therefore, to simplify reporting from inspectors, rabbits are grouped in with poultry.
