Denmark: weaner exports continue to grow

Increasing numbers were exported for finishing in Poland.

Thursday 26 September 2013 (4 years 9 months 27 days ago)

Exports of weaners from Denmark continued to grow in the first six months of 2013. Although exports to Germany remained at a high level, increasing numbers were exported for finishing in Poland, where there has been a significant reduction in the sow herd in recent years. This trend had a knock-on effect on the number of pigs slaughtered in Danish abattoirs, which declined in the first half of 2013.

The decline in the number of pigs slaughtered also led to a fall in Danish pig meat exports. UK exports fell from 120,000 to 107,000 tonnes in the first half year and shipments to a number of other key export markets also declined.

However, within the EU, shipments to Poland increased, largely influenced by the increasing export of weaners. Tonnages sold to China and Russia increased – the latter being influenced by action taken by the Russian veterinary authorities in blocking imports from factories in the US and Germany.
