Pig prices have continued to soar with the SPP putting on another 1.02p to stand at 135p, but still well adrift of spot bacon quotes which have been in the 145p/kg region, although one or two reports of 150p/kg being paid where buyers have been short of numbers.


Contract abattoir weekly announced prices have also continued to improve with most of the major players increasing their prices by 2p – 3p, with probably more to come in the weeks ahead.


The Euro continues to work in producers’ favour as far as pigmeat values are concerned, trading on Friday at noon worth 86.25p...
