2nd December 2016
With Christmas just around the bend (like many of us) it is good for once to be able to reflect on a much better uptake for pigs and prices that are actually in the black, for the time being. The SPP continues its relentless upward march gaining another 0.58p to stand at 150.74p, also reflecting firmer prices on mainland Europe where the German producer price has lifted another 3 Euro Cents to stand at 1.59 EUR/kg, which translates to 134p/kg deadweight in our money.
Spot prices have also remained firm, although one or two extra loads of pigs may be available in the run up to Christmas...
