Another testing week draws to a close with the SPP still in decline losing another .42p to 146.79p but UK prices are still well ahead of equivalent EU mainland values where the influential German producer price dropped another 4 Euro cents, now stands (or sits) at 1.36 EUR which is equivalent to around 119p in GBP terms but unfortunately the gap is far too wide between UK and EU mainland prices putting more downward pressure on the value of our pigs as cheap imports continue to undercut the domestic market to a significant extent.
