Danish exports of piglets continued on an upward trajectory

Exports of piglets to Germany, Poland and other EU markets continued on an upward trajectory, rising from 6.5 to 7.2 million head in January to July 2015.

Tuesday 20 October 2015 (2 years 3 months 29 days ago)

The latest pig census in Denmark (published on July 1st) suggested that the breeding herd had stabilised but there were higher numbers of piglets and weaners on Danish pig farms.

Although domestic slaughterings rose in the first seven months of the year (from 10.8 to 11.1 million head), exports of piglets to Germany, Poland and other EU markets continued on an upward trajectory, rising from 6.5 to 7.2 million head in January to July 2015.

The latest forecast from SEGES/Danish Pig Research Centre suggests that pig producers face losses of over DKK 300,000 in 2015 but will return a small profit of around DKK 75,000 in 2016. However, these figures represent the average position and the top third of farmers will still show a profit in both years.
