Finished pig prices are continuing to improve thanks to a combination of tight supplies, a relatively firm Euro and higher pigmeat values across much of mainland Europe.

The SPP put on 0.49p to stand at a 21 month high of 140.38p and some, but not all, weekly contribution prices have also risen by a copper of two in places with most now between 139p and 145p/kg.

Peter Crichton FAAV has over 40 years' experience and specialises in providing clients with a wide range of independent professional advice in connection with rural matters including Tenancy Agreements, rent reviews, the sale and valuation of farm machinery, probate, tax and year end valuations. 


Peter is also heavily involved in pig industry consultancy work and markets weaners, finishers and cull sows on a live and deadweight basis throughout the region.
