Pig Prices Much Firmer On All Fronts

This week saw another “stand on” situation in the spot and contract markets with the GB AESA hardly altered at 102.93. Most spot buyers were forced to follow a similar pricing structure with all weights falling into the 106p to 98p/kg range.

Weaner quotes have also remained much the same and this week the Farmers Weekly 30kg weaner ex farm average is slightly firmer at 34.04 per head with most 7kg pigs traded between 21 and 23.50 each.

Pig traders are commenting that prices on all fronts are much firmer for the normally difficult holiday period and the signs are that prices in the autumn will rise from current levels.
