Thursday 16 May 2013 (5 years 4 days ago)

Pig slaughtering in Denmark fell during the first quarter of 2013, although there was evidence that export of live pigs, especially weaners, had begun to stabilise.

Pig slaughtering in Denmark fell below the 5m mark during the first quarter of 2013 (4.78 millin heads), representing a drop of 8% on the previous year (5.21).

Weaner exports continued to grow strongly in the early weeks of 2013, but fell back during the last few weeks of March. The total export of live pigs, predominantly weaners for finishing in Germany and Poland, reached 2.37 million head during the first quarter, a similar figure to 2012 (2.38).
