EU - The situation appears altogether unsettled on the European pig slaughter market.

After increasing pressure built up last week, starting from Germany, many quotations went down noticeably.

With abundant quantities of pigs for slaughter on offer, not much could be set against the slaughter companies’ pressure.

Price decreases range from 1.3 cents in Spain to 4.9 cents in Belgium.

While the quotations are under pressure everywhere, the Danish quotation went up by a corrected 3.5 cents.

Trend for the German Market:

This new calendar week again, the pig market is characterised by large quantities of pigs for slaughter on offer.

The producers’ readiness to sell went up after the latest price decrease, having the slaughter belts running top speed.

With regard to the further development, the meat treating business should not lose sight of the Danish price level.
