Livestock market: positive dynamics continues


Pork prices continued upward movement in the second half of September, according to the results of weekly monitoring of purchasing prices of the Association Ukranian Pig Breeders.

According to the results of trades in the 38th week, the majority of commodity batches were between 72-75 UAH/kg, although occasionally there were higher price marks. Rising prices entailed significant predominance of demand for live pigs of slaughter conditions over their supply. Thus, most pork producers stated that sometimes the number of applications for current weekly lots exceeded the available volumes by 1.5-2 times. In addition, a considerable part of operators sell animals of smaller live weight or in smaller batches, leaving livestock to pick up the necessary condition.

Representatives of the meat processing industry, on the one hand, confirm the shortage of pigs of slaughter conditions in all regions, and on the other hand, they expect the reaction of final sales to price changes. Despite this, the vast majority of them still do not note the widespread negative signals from sales.
