EU Pig Prices: Quotations Mostly Unchanged

24 August 2010, at 12:21am

EU - This week, mostly unchanged quotations appear on the European slaughter pig market as is the case in Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Austria.

In Spain, the price fell by as many as three cents, in Great Britain by two cents. Yet, the quotation went up by three cents in France.

In Spain, the price decrease is said to be a result of the margins being too low in meat sales as well as of the slaughter companies’ announcement to carry out less pig slaughters. The French slaughter companies, on the contrary, are worrying to not be able to ensure supply, thus being ready to pay higher prices. The supply-and-demand situation is reported to remain mostly balanced in the Netherlands, so the quotation there remains unchanged.

Trend: The quantities of pigs for sales have increased over the past few days. Nevertheless, all pigs are sold swiftly on the market. Demand for pork continues to be brisk, however no price increases are enforceable, according to what is heard from the slaughter companies.
