EU Pig Prices: Unchanged and Increasing Prices01 August 2013
EU - The supply of market pigs remains scarce. Lower slaughter weights can be observed in nearly every country and while prices have risen in some countries, they have at least remained steady elsewhere.
In Germany and Austria there was no price increase this week. The meat markets are not as dynamic as in the weeks before.
In the Netherlands, Belgium and France, the scarce supply of pigs allowed a price increase of one cent.
In Spain, high temperature have caused low daily gains of the pigs and in consequence a small supply, so that here a price increase of two cents per kg slaughter weight was possible.
The quotation in Denmark went up by three cents per kg. It is said that the exports, particularly to Russia, are higher than the last few weeks.
Trend for the German market: The current situation should remain the same this week so prices are expected to remain level.
