TVC COMMENTARY

Price slips to
2016 level

January 13, 2019

TVC Trade this week was tempered by poor demand in all areas. The current vogue for 'Veganuary' and other meatless diets cannot be helping demand in what is generally a poor month for sales. Supply matched this poor demand however, with very few pigs remaining unsold.

Contract price contributions generally stood-on but one monthly quote was forecast to fall sharply. SPP continued its downward slide, falling 0.58p to 140.02p — a level not seen since October 2016.

The fresh meat markets were quiet, not surprising for mid-January, and prices generally eased a penny or so.

Cull sow supply volumes remained healthy and prices stood-on.

European markets continued to show stability with the influential German market standing on for the tenth consecutive week. Price quotes in sterling were enhanced slightly by a stronger euro that ended the week up 0.03p at 90.02p.

ABOUT TRAFFIC LIGHTS

Traffic Lights is available to British pig producers on Thursday nights, advising next day's spot price sentiment. The Traffic Lights spot base provides sellers who have one-off loads of spot pigs (as opposed to regular weekly supplies) with a realistic minimum base price. In many cases it should be possible to achieve premiums over base. During periods of oversupply the Traffic Lights price will be well below contract levels but the reverse applies when pigs are short, when spot base will be well above contract rates.
