Market analysis

Weak hog prices discouraged hog raisers from replenishing piglet stocks. To reduce production cost, some raisers kept piglets produced in their farms and sent sows for slaughtering.

Hog raisers' profits have hit their lowest levels in two months. Profits may not rise in the near term as there were still no signs to suggest a quick turnaround in hog and piglet prices.

Market forecast

Hog prices in China may continue to weaken amid a lack of fresh leads. In the week ahead, piglet prices are expected to remain sluggish on poor buying interest.
