EU - This week, the European pig slaughter market has been steady.

Prices have remained steady with only minor fluctuations around the previous levels. Owing to the heat, supplies of pigs have been scarce all over Europe.

French pig keepers noted a moderate price increase by a corrected 1.7 cents. Supply-related, the quotations went up a little in Spain as well.

Last week’s price increase was withdrawn in the Netherlands and Belgium. There, the quotations were corrected slightly downward.

Imported goods from Germany are getting to Austria’s meat business. In view of strong demand for live pigs, this has not affected prices.

Trend for the German market: With the temperatures remaining high, the quantities on offer continue to display clearly of pigs for slaughter. The meat business is expected to stabilise with the new month beginning and the holidays ending in the first German states.
