The SPP has continued its steady rise and now stands at 136.01p compared with a 2016 low of 112.07p, which is a difference of 24p or £19.20 for a typical bacon pig, although the SPP is still running well behind current spot quotes which were generally in the 145p/kg region, but still one or two reports of buyers who are particularly short of pigs being prepared to pay up to 150p/kg.
German pig prices have however remained at stand on levels for the last 7 weeks and EU price rises have been due to currency movements rather than any further increase in demand on an EU wide basis.
