The prices in most EU member countries went up again. In Ireland, however, the quotation remained on an unchanged level for the thirteenth time in a row. Once again, the price decreases in Great Britain and Sweden must be attributed to exchange rate changes. The Swedish original quotation remained unchanged for the fourth time in a row.

From the Netherlands, a price increase is reported as a result of better sales revenues from pork and as a result of slightly decreased supply of slaughter pigs lots. France gives notice of a 5-cents’ plus which is justified by clearly increased demand and declining slaughter weights. A better situation in exports as well as lower quantities of pigs on offer made prices increase by 5 cents in Spain, too.

Trend: The mood continues to be friendly on the pigs-mature-for-slaughter market due to supply be declining of pigs for slaughter and with demand for pork, and barbecue meat in particular, being good.
