Irish pig prices this week were in the range of 175 – 180c/kg

Irish pig prices this week were in the range of 175 – 180c/kg this week, according to Bord Bia report out this afternoon.

“For the week ending the 31 August, total pig supplies at export meat plants were 3,800 head lower compared to the same week in 2012, at 54,400 head,” it said.

In the UK, Bord Bia noted trade remains subdued on the back of some increase in prices as supplies continue to remain tight. The greatest increase in price reported was for leg.

On the continent, it found the pigmeat trade was mixed over the past week, with prices reflecting this pattern across the key European markets. Reported prices for Grade E pigs were as follows: French prices are making €1.75/kg.
