EU Pig Prices: Comprehensive Quantities on Offer

EU - This week, the European slaughter pig markets appear steady.

In the individual member countries, the pig prices remain on an unchanged level in almost all countries in the current week, being based on strong foundations. The quantities on offer continue to be on a comprehensive level throughout Europe, with marketing not causing any problems anywhere.

In the French region of Brittany, an increase of nearly 1 cent was noted; slaughter companies are slightly in deficit as of supply. As a result of changes in the exchange rate, the Swedish price increases are almost being swallowed up. Thus, a slight minus is noted below the line. The official price has remained unchanged in Ireland, yet ever more producers do reach the upper edge in the price range. Reports from Austria say that the domestic demand for pork is back to being vivid. In Spain, people are expressing their satisfaction about the usual September price decrease failing to materialize this year. One of the reasons for this is the temperatures, which have not been quite as hot this summer and which have resulted in slightly lower quantities of pigs slaughtered in August. Apart from that, the slaughter weights are found on a comparably low level.

Trend for the German market: The market situation is expected to continue to be steady in the days to come. The registrations available at present justify expectations of an ongoing comprehensive supply which, however, will be placed swiftly. Exports towards third countries should be further inspired by the weakening Euro.
