EU Pig Prices: Upswing Continues Throughout Europe

5 May 2010, at 6:00am

EU - Throughout Europe, the slaughter pig market is characterised by an upswing this week.

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.
