Pig Prices (EU Spec)

Home \ Prices & Stats \ Prices \ Pig Prices (EU Spec)

GB finished pig prices continued to show little movement in the week ended 10 August, with the EU-spec SPP reaching 153.01p/kg. This was 0.21p higher than a week earlier and nearly 4p above year-earlier levels. Lacklustre domestic demand continues to hamper farmgate prices, despite the high price of imports.

Estimated weekly slaughter totalled 175,300 head, a little higher than last week and up 2% from a year earlier. Carcase weights during the week averaged 83.50kg, also slightly higher than the previous week. Pigs are still nearly 1kg heavier than a year earlier, which is further boosting supplies on the market.

In contrast, the EU-spec APP for the week ending 3 August fell to 155.21p/kg, a week-on-week change of 0.54p. During the same week, the EU-spec SPP stood at 152.80p/kg, meaning the APP was 2.41p higher.
