Transports of Danish pigs ready for slaughtering at foreign slaughterhouses decreased by 1/3 in 2010. New figures from the Danish Council for Agriculture & Food show that transports out of Denmark decreased by 800.000 compared to 1.1 million pigs the previous year.

Over several years the slaughterhouses in Denmark lost pigs to foreign slaughterhouses. The pig producers could get a cash advantage from paying a conveyer to transport their pigs to a slaughterhouse in Germany where the settling prices were higher.

Since last summer the German price per pig was just between 3 and 4 Euros ahead of the Danish, and it will cost € 10 per pig to sell it. So the pig get transported to the slaughterhouse where we get the highest settling price informs the producer. As a consequence the number of slaughterings in Denmark again has passed the 20 million after several years of decline.
