Although the German pig herd has shrunk over the past couple of years, German producers are importing increasing numbers of slaughter hogs and piglets from other countries, in particular Denmark.

In 2002, the country imported 199,000 tonnes of live pigs. By 2008 this had almost tripled to 592,000 tonnes. We expect pork production in 2010 to come in at 5.36mn tonnes, up 1.92% year-on-year and up 159,000 tonnes on our previous report.
