The Swedish and Danish prices went down by a corrected 6 and 5 cents, respectively. Having remained on an unchanged level the week before, Denmark’s quotation thus caught up with the other European markets.

The prices in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Belgium and Austria remained unchanged. It is true that these countries give notice of vast quantities of pigs on offer. But those quantities can be sold on the respective markets without problem. As to meat sales, high-quality parts are mainly looked for by food retailing over the pre-Christmas period.

Trend: The still extensive quantities of pigs for slaughter on offer are sold reasonably well on the market. The selling of high-quality parts in particular attributes to the margin remaining consistent on the part of the slaughter companies. This way, prices are expected to remain unchanged.
