AHDB Pork’s weekly pig prices, slaughter data and commentary for Great Britain

The EU-spec SPP held its ground in the week ended November 20, at 144.31/kg, 0.15p higher than a week earlier.

Pig prices were stable in the week ending 20 November 20201

Estimated slaughter for the week was 196,200 head up on the week and the year, by 11,000 and 21,000 head respectively. Reports indicate that a number of abattoirs undertook a Saturday kill, although there were only limited numbers of particularly low-priced pigs.

The average carcase weight fell compared to the previous week, albeit by a modest 240g to 91.84kg.

Unfortunately, there was insufficient data available to produce a 7kg or 30kg weaner price this week. However, for the week ending November 13, the EU-spec APP fell by 1.13p to stand at 149.89/kg. The gap between the two price series therefore widened to 5.73p.
