Pig Prices (EU Spec)

Please note the APP for w/e 14 and 21 December and SPP for w/e 21 and 28 December are scheduled to be produced on 3 January.

The EU-spec SPP moved up again in the week ending 7 December, the highest price since September 2017. This extends the price premium over the same week last year to 18.11p.

Estimated slaughter for the week was 188,000 head, around 300 head lower than last week, and 2,700 less than in the same week last year. The kill is likely staying high as processors work to meet the demand for the festive season, as well as exports.

Carcase weights were lighter again this week, at 84.20kg, however, still slightly heavier than last year

In the week ending 30 November, the EU-spec APP moved up, though by less than the SPP (+ 0.36p), and so the gap between the two narrowed to 1.63p.
