The latest pig census in Denmark indicated that production would remain stable in the coming months, although Danish Agriculture & Food Council (DAFC) recently revised down their price forecasts for the remainder of this year. Although pig slaughterings in the first quarter of 2014 were virtually unchanged from the previous year, exports of weaners remained at high levels.

The April pig census in Denmark showed a modest 2% increase in overall pig numbers. The key figure, as an indicator of future production trends, is the size of the breeding herd, which was unchanged.

In the first three months of 2014, pig slaughterings in Denmark were virtually unchanged from the previous year at 4.8 million head. However this figure compared to 5.2 million in 2012 and 5.6 million head in 2011.

In the same period, weaner exports grew to 2.6 million head, compared to 2.3 million head in the previous two years.
