1. Pig meat supplies fall in January

While UK clean pig slaughterings in January were reported by Defra to be level with the calendar month in 2016, this was due to there being an extra working day in January 2017 compared with 2016.

2. UK pig meat exports hit 17-year high in 2016

In December, the volume of UK pig meat exports increased on the year for the first time since August. At over 15,600 tonnes, shipments of pig meat from the UK were 3% higher than December 2015 and the highest volume exported in the month of December since 1999.

3. An uncertain future for Irish pig meat?

The pig meat sector is extremely important for Irish agriculture and it is also very export dependent, with the UK its primary destination.
