  • 30 Sep 10:22

How viruses shaped a new reality for Ukraine Market situations can differ from country to country; this becomes clear when listening to Oksana Yurchenko, president of the Association of Ukrainian Pig Breeders. Where Covid-19 led to supply chain problems in the US, Ukraine’s commercial production had a different experience. Long beforeAfrican Swine Fever(ASF) crossed the borders of Germany, the virus had already emerged in Ukraine. The country has been facing the virus since 2012 and learned the devastating consequences. In recent years, the country’s swine sector has been recovering bit by bit – then a new virus showed up: Covid-19. Oksana Yurchenko, president of the Association of. Read more...

EU Pig Prices: The Market is Going Nowhere

  • 27 Apr 08:21

EU Pig Prices: The Market is Going Nowhere The European pig slaughter market still does not gain momentum. Agricultural producers still need to content themselves with the very low price level achieved so far. Almost all EU member countries show unchanged quotations. The reason given sounds the same from most all sides, basically: the meat market leaves a lot to be desired. On the one hand price-boosting arguments are missing across borders. On the other hand, the price increase which had been discussed about and waited for in Germany failed to appear. The Spanish quotation as well has not yet been able to start the seasonal rally as a consequence of sufficient quantities on offer and despite vivid. Read more...

Pig Prices Remain High in China

Pig Prices Remain High in China The latest reports from China suggest that pig prices remain high and there is little sign of demand for imported pork slowing down. The high price level is evidenced by wholesale pork prices, which tend to track pig prices closely. Over the last couple of months, these have fluctuated around 25 yuan/kg (£2.70/kg) and, if anything, have been increasing further in the latest weeks. This would translate into a liveweight pig price of around £2/kg. Prices are now almost 50% higher than a year ago, when they reached a low point of around 17 yuan/kg. Latest figures suggest that, despite the recovery in prices, Chinese sow numbers continue to fall, as many. Read more...

EU Pig Prices: Price Increase Continues The European pig slaughter market was able to continue the friendly trend. The majority of quotations went up again because of the good demand situation before Easter. The marching course was once again determined by Germany with its plus 4 cents. The Dutch and Belgian quotations followed suit and at almost the same height. In Denmark as well, where the price had stayed the same (1.282 €) over the past three weeks, the prices most recently went up by a corrected 4.2 cents, adding up to 1.324 €. This way, Denmark is again leading the ranking of the five countries most significant in European pig keeping and relegating France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands. Read more...

EU Pig Prices: Markets Are Stabilising – Dutch Quotation Going Up Slightly

  • 14 Mar 10:25

The European pig slaughter market is picking up courage again. Above all, the German quotation’s sideward movement tipped the scales to stabilise the market situation. The quotations moved sideward altogether. The Dutch quotation was an exception, having hit the bottom already with its plus 2 cents. Austria, for example, rather bets on clearly improving prices with the so-called big players on the European market. France currently ranks first within the pricing structure of the five member countries most significant in pig keeping. Yet, this is not to be mistaken for careless production conditions. The French pig-keeping business still has to. Read more...
