EU Pig Prices: Steady Trend, Positive Prospects

EU - The European slaughter pig market appears to be largely balanced this week. In spite of the Easter holidays and the missing days of slaughter, there has been no surplus production of slaughter pigs.

Many slaughter companies raised the number of slaughters noticeably on all other days around Easter. So, the quantities available still may be marketed without problem.

Except for quotations in Denmark and Italy, all quotations prove to remain unchanged. From the positive trend in Denmark and Italy, the export business may be thought to further improve. The Italian quotation went up by a corrected 5 cents, reaching EUR 1.32 per kg slaughter weight. A corrected 3 cents’ plus was reported on from Denmark. The Swedish quotation went down by a corrected 1 cent, for currency rate reasons

Trend: With demand for pork being good presently and as a result of better domestic business and slightly improving exports, the prices are expected to slightly increase by the end of this week.
