Russia market hog price is at one of the highest in its history Profits are in the $80 per head range and big companies are making plans for expansion. Russian pig prices are now almost double compared to those offered in markets such as Canada, the US or Brazil.

Russia Hog Market

Russia Hog Market Pig price currently is currently 110 Roubles per live kg ($1,92). For good farmers, pigs continue to be very profitable, but for many not! according to Simon Grey, General Manager Russia, CIS, and Europe. Some are even losing money (incredible though it seems). I was asked a week or so ago, “why when Russia has low grain cost (wheat at 8900 Roubles ($156) per metric tonne), low labour cost (about $500 per month) and low energy cost (petrol $0.56 per litre at the pump) why are costs of production so high”? Russia wants to continue to grow its pig industry and become a net exporter. For me this is a very sensible ambition. Russia has a massive land bank and can. Read more...

China Hog Market

China Hog Market A time for recollection and contemplation for the Chinese Pig Industry in the Year of the Chicken, writes Alexander Kovachevich, GM China Area, Genesus Genetics. According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2017 is the Year of the Chicken. While the chicken sign is seen as quite a positive sign, with attributes such as loyalty and persistence, it is commonly said that one’s ‘own year’ (本命年) is a difficult one. When looking at consumers’ consumption habits of protein, we look at three ‘competing’ groups, eggs, chicken meat and pork. High prices for one generally leads to people choosing more of the other. While pork prices have been high for. Read more...

USA Hog Market

USA Hog Market We hear this term (Rewarding the Market), but having a marketing plan means we need to pull the trigger, writes Allan Bentley, Sales & Service, Genesus. At the time of my last market report cull sows were 10-15 cents a pound, I advised holding off on those cull sales as long as possible and cull sows are now at 35-40 cents. I think that market will continue higher but we need to reward the market and sell those conditioned sows, as they are the most valuable. As for lighter and thinner sows, I would hold them, if at all possible. The June and July futures at the time of my last report were around 71 cents. That market has improved to almost $81.00. Depending on. Read more...

Russia Hog Market Report

Russia Hog Market Report The new year starts with a pig price of 96 Roubles per kg live ($1.28) meaning the majority of producers are making money, with some of the large integrators still making a lot of money, writes Simon Grey, Genesus. What does 2016 have in store for Russian pig producers. This will I think have a lot to do with the structure and ownership of each individual business. Fully integrated business that grow crops to feed pigs have a very low cash cost of production (even if on paper they lose money, if you put grain into pigs at cost of production then 96 Roubles sales price means you still have a business with very good cash flow)!! Russia has done its federal budget for 2016. Read more...

Pork Commentary: China! China! China!

  • 3 Nov 10:00

Pork Commentary: China! China! China! The China pork market continues to be the wildcard for the hog price prospects for both the North American and EU markets. There are several truths. China’s domestic hog price is $1.25 USD liveweight per pound. The US price live is 52? per pound, while the EU-US price equivalent is 54? per pound. The price spread between the US and EU prices and China is just under $200 USD per head. No matter what Chinese statistics you look at, there has been a massive liquidation of sows, somewhere between 10 – 12 million sows. A number so large it is almost incomprehensible at almost twice the North American sow herd and almost equivalent to the EU sow herd. The. Read more...
