The problems in Germany are spreading to Holland, from where traditionally many pig producers transport their pigs to slaughterhouses in Germany.

Now the dioxin scandal is seriously affecting the Danish pig producers as well. The closure of several thousand farms in Germany and the ban on imports of German pork on several large markets worsened the financial crisis in German farming, and the consequences are e.g. that exports of piglets to Germany have slowed down entirely. The largest Danish exporter of piglets informs that their exports of piglets have been reduced from 35,000 to 21,000 weekly.
