UK - As the pig industry goes through turbulent times, top quality information is needed on which to base sound business decisions.

Data of that sort is just what is provided by the Pig Yearbook, just published for BPEX by the Market Intelligence section of AHDB.

It provides a detailed analysis of the development of the challenging EU market and more importantly its impact on relative cost competitiveness.

The Yearbook includes:

  • analysis of production costs and returns, indicating that the average costs of production in GB in 2009 at 131.4p per kg deadweight was below the EU average.
  • surveyed financial and technical performance data for 2010 for various pig production systems from Agrosoft Ltd.
  • pig meat supply and demand trends.
  • key industry statistics and carcase classification.

BPEX Head of Communications Andrew Knowles said: "This book contains the whole industry in figures and gives a complete overview of UK pig production.

"It is essential for all those in the industry as the information it contains will help them make sound business decisions."
