EU Pig Prices: Stable Conditions on EU Markets

EU - This week stable conditions are prevailing on the European slaughter pig markets almost without exception.

The quantities on offer are meeting demand despite the missing days of slaughter because of the Easter break.

In France, the quantities on offer are reported to be slightly down, because fewer pigs were required over the holidays in France. Prices remained on last week’s level.

In Spain, the market is also reported to be well balanced. There, the price has been fixed for a period of two weeks before Easter.

Just as in Germany, no change in prices was seen in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Austria.

Trend for the German market: Demand and supply are well balanced in Germany at the moment. The business in meat trade is still reported to not be optimal, but demand for pigs remains lively. There is hope for increasing prices, based on increasing business for barbecue meat. But with the weather being not so nice at present, meat sales have not been so brisk. Prices are expected to be at least steady or even slightly increasing next week.
