Peter Crichton


Valuation, Auction & Property Consultancy Services




17th February 2017


Supply and demand are (almost) marching in step, which is better than the usual “feast or famine” situation we often see in the pig industry but, if anything, forward numbers appear to be on the tight side and if this coincides with a seasonal early spring improvement in demand, we could have a competitive few months ahead of us.


Although the SPP eased for the fifth week in succession, it has only dropped by an overall total of 1.58 when compared with its mid January peak and still stands at a very respectable 149.66p.

Peter Crichton FAAV has over 40 years' experience and specialises in providing clients with a wide range of independent professional advice in connection with rural matters including Tenancy Agreements, rent reviews, the sale and valuation of farm machinery, probate, tax and year end valuations. 


Peter is also heavily involved in pig industry consultancy work and markets weaners, finishers and cull sows on a live and deadweight basis throughout the region.
