EU Pig Prices: Little Movement at Start of the Year

EU - Only slight changes are reported from the European slaughter pig markets this first week of the New Year.

No new quotation was published in Germany, and in the Netherlands, Denmark and Belgium, there were no changes in prices. In Spain and France, the prices needed to be corrected downward by 3 cents and by 2 cents in Austria.

After the German price had been reduced by 8 cents in calendar week 52/2011, France (- 9 cents), Denmark and Austria (-8 cents), the Netherlands (-7 cents) and Spain (-6 cents) succeeded in closing in on Germany's leading quotation.

Trend for the German market: Supply and demand are currently quite balanced. The prices in wholesale meat markets are comparatively stable as well; only shoulder and (processed) belly went down in price, but only very slightly. Overall, the present situation may be described as stable. It remains to be seen how demand for pork will develop in the days to come.
