Peter Crichton


Valuation, Auction & Property Consultancy Services




24th March 2017



Another positive week for sellers with the SPP putting on 0.86p to stand at 151.04p and weekly contribution prices also rising by up to 3p/kg with most now between 150p – 158p/kg according to spec. Spot baconers have remained very thin on the ground but where they were available bids in the 155p/kg + region were on the cards.


GB pig prices were helped by rising European values with the influential German producer price.....
