Recently, the German listing increased due to the current tight supply situation by 7 cents and overtook the only stable French listing, which now slips to third place in the European price structure of the five largest pig-keeping EU member countries. The Netherlands and Belgium followed the German example with significant increases in prices.

In Austria, where some slaughterhouses had to cancel individual slaughter days due to the tight supply, the listing continued the price increase by another 5 cents. Lighter quotes are reported from Denmark and Spain.
