EU - The upswing is continuing all over the European slaughter pigs market. Supply still undercuts average in many EU countries, with the slaughter weights decreasing. As a consequence, most quotations within the EU go on increasing slightly.

At the same time, Spain and Great Britain are in a position to expand their winning margin by about 20 cents, compared to the other countries. Spain’s latest increase of quotations is caused by increasing demand from the country’s southern regions.
With their corrected quotations ranking from EUR 1.35 to 1.40, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Austria and Germany are presently found to be the midfielders among the European countries.

Denmark and Sweden are presenting the lower third, quoting at a corrected EUR 1.20 and 1.25, respectively.
