US pigmeat prices are at their lowest levels since April 2006, with southern hemisphere pig producers in South America and Australia also facing falling returns.

While the European Union has introduced Aid to Private Storage for 100,000 tonnes of pigmeat this week (29 October), this may do little more than stabilise the market rather than improve values.

Improve retailer prices

In order to ease the financial pressures faced by UK pig producers, the British Pig Executive is considering an industry proposal to suspend the pig levy worth £1.05/pig for a three month period.
