During the past month pig prices have been gradually creeping towards top dollar and the drought in pig numbers is helping the prices soar, reports The Land.

William Inglis and Son stock agent, Stephen Nutt, Camden, said more pig producers were getting out of the game due to the high cost of feeding.

“The pig market is bopping along not setting any records, but the shortage of numbers is starting to affect the market,“ he said.
