EU Pig Prices: Prices Steady or Slightly Increasing

EU - Prices throughout Europe have stabilised widely this week.

The French and Spanish prices, which remained unchanged the week before, were recorded to have increased this week. In Spain, the increased payout price is said to be caused by higher demand for pigs mature for slaughter as well as by slightly decreased quantities of pigs on offer. During the auction in Brittany (France), the price range was exceptionally wide. Domestic demand there is said to be brisk.

The prices in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Denmark stabilised on last week’s level. The quantities of pigs for slaughter on offer continue to be well demanded on the part of the slaughter companies. In the north-westerly areas in Germany in particular, supply drops behind demand from the slaughter companies. Against expectations voiced at the beginning of the week, no price increases could be enforced in Germany as a result of the pressure exerted by various slaughter companies.

Trend: For the days ahead, most of the European countries expect that the supply of pigs mature for slaughter remains to be extensive. The demand for meat continuing to proceed in a positive way, producer prices are expected to remain steady at least.
