This study focuses on the effectiveness of the support program for slaughterhouses and meat
processing plants using the results of a survey conducted on slaughterhouses and meat processors
to evaluate the modernization of the facilities and funding projects for running these operations.
For the data obtained through the survey, a widely used propensity score matching technique was
applied to identify the impact of government policy measures or system implementation. According
to the result of the analysis, it was found that the average number and maximum number of hogs
slaughtered per day were significantly higher for the companies participating in support projects
than those that did not. In addition, it was revealed that the slaughterhouses that participated in
support projects had more cattle and hogs to be slaughtered on average per day and the maximum
number of slaughtered livestock per day compared to those that did not. Compared to slaughterhouses
that did not participate in support projects, 1,436 more hogs were slaughtered per day on average,
and the maximum number of hogs slaughtered per day was higher by 765~815 heads. It was
calculated that slaughterhouses that participated in support projects could process an average of
60 more beeves per day compared to those that did not. In the case of hogs, it was found that
the maximum slaughter quantity per day increased by 765 heads, and the average number of
slaughtered heads per day increased by 1,374 heads.
