What Short Week?
Pig prices are continuing on their upward track, with the SPP putting on a further .76p to stand at 159.21p and spot buyers were as keen as ever for a dwindling supply of spare pigs in the system. The recent spell of hot weather is also hitting growth rates and there are several cases where finished pig numbers are dwindling due to insufficient weight in the system. Most weekly announced prices have remained at similar levels within the 159p-164p range....
