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.
