EU - Themajority of quotations on the EU pig market have been holding steady this week, with the German guide quotation stable.

After a three-week downswing, the slaughter pig price held its ground on last week’s level, producing a corrected €1. 696 per kg slaughter weight.

The Dutch, Belgian, Austrian and Irish quotations were also unchanged. As a result of changes in currency exchange rates, the British quotation has increased a little.

In other EU regions, prices could not maintain the existing price level and went down as a result.

Spain and France are facing a continuing price decrease. Quotations are approaching the European mid-field and the two markets are well supplied with pigs.

In Spain, growth of pigs has gone up as the temperature cools down. France is also reportedly increasing slaughter weights.

The Danish quotation, which stands at a corrected 2.8 cents, is also going down.

Trend for the German market: At the start of the new week of slaughter, the relation between the quantities of live pigs on offer and slaughter companies’ demand appears to be well-balanced. According to reports, the missing day of slaughter on 3 October will cause no problems and therefore, the situation is expected to remain steady.
