Pig prices stayed strong as demand for lamb grew in Europe, says QMS In the week ended April 1st, prime prices for hoggs although reported a slight decrease have remained 30% above year earlier levels, according to Quality Meat Scotland. “Auction market throughputs through March have been well above last years levels, while the UK weekly slaughter of prime sheep has been running well ahead of last year throughout January and February,” said Quality Meat Scotland’s Director of Economics Services. “So despite strong supplies of hogs, farmgate prices have strengthened suggesting a basic strength in demand,” he added. According to QMS, high farmgate hog prices were reported not only in Scotland but. Read more...

Russia Hog Market Report

  • 5 May 10:34

Russia Hog Market Report Russian pig price is currently recovering from the lows of a few weeks ago. Prices have increased by 10 Roubles per kg in both of the last 2 weeks and this week are at 112 Roubles per live kg, writes Simon Grey, Sales & Service Genesus Russia. The recent price dip was caused by several factors. The major reasons was Lent where many Russian’s do not eat meat, which obviously reduced demand in a market that is nearing self-sufficiency, on top of a general reduction in spending across the country. Today lent is coming to an end and temperatures are rising and people are again buying more pig meat. As always, being Russia there are conspiracy theories of. Read more...

EU Pig Prices: Quotations are Bobbing Up and Down – Recovering Soon?

  • 29 Apr 10:30

EU Pig Prices: Quotations are Bobbing Up and Down – Recovering Soon? Nothing’s new on the western front. But related to the European pig slaughter market, nothing new suitable to change the course seems to come from any other direction. The pig slaughter quotations go on bobbing up and down throughout Europe on the level achieved. France closely approaches the Danes after slightly correcting the price to €1.32. The Danes currently are paying €1.33, still maintaining the top position in the European price structure of the five EU member countries most significant in pig keeping. The Spanish quotation was able to go up by one corrected cent. As to pork, the supply situation is quite comfortable. Taking a look at. 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...

EU Pig Prices: Markets Balanced – Steady Quotations

EU Pig Prices: Markets Balanced – Steady Quotations Last week, the European pig slaughter market got ever steadier.Most of the countries recorded unchanged quotations in the EU pig price comparison. The supply pressure that had formed over Easter could be sold meanwhile. Thus, the markets got back to being balanced. With just one exception: The Austrians did not yet succeed in freeing themselves from the backlog supply resulting from over the Easter holiday. On top of that, bargain offers from abroad exerted pressure on the domestic market. According to what a French market observer says, the French market seems to be relieved in connection with the German quotation’s sideward movement. Alternatively, the prices. Read more...

Pig Prices Remain High in China

  • 12 Apr 09:35

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

  • 30 Mar 09:49

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...

Global Pig Prices Remain Continued Decline in 2015

  • 10 Mar 10:36

Global Pig Prices Remain Continued Decline in 2015 Global pig prices have fallen steadily throughout 2015, following an exceptionally high year for prices in 2014. Based on the prices of the four major exporters (the EU, US, Canada and Brazil), the average export pork price finished 2015 at $2.38/kg. This is the lowest level for over six years, $0.57 lower than the same point last year and over a dollar less than the price peak recorded in June 2014. Several factors have combined to drive down value in the global pork market. The well documented supply glut following the Russian bans in 2014 has put downward pressure on EU, Canadian and US prices. The EU price has only just started to stabilise in January 2016, in.

EU Pig Prices: Uncertainty Causes Pressure

  • 1 Mar 11:00

EU Pig Prices: Uncertainty Causes Pressure Currently, the European pig slaughter market appears in an inconsistent way, being made strongly insecure because of the situation as it is on the German pig slaughter market. Just like in Germany, the quotations were reported to remain unchanged for pigs for slaughter this current week in Denmark, France and in Austria. Information however got circulating soon that the market situation is very tense in Germany as a result of discounted prices – deviating from the concerted price - being paid by various slaughter companies. Such kind of nervousness as is observed in the country of the leading quotation is unavoidably imparted on other European. Read more...
