Dutch pig exports prefer Germany

Pig exports of the Netherlands in the first half of the year: growing share of Germany

The big boom period of piglets export gains from the Netherlands belongs to the past. The increase for the first half of 2014 is only 0.9% compared with previous years prior to 2010 with double-digit growth rates compared to the same period last year.  Switching the Dutch pig farms on higher shares of sows is a consequence of reduced pollution as they are caused by the pure pig. Holland finishing surfaces are tightly limited.

Germany has, however, increasingly on the pig and created an surplus of mast sites . At the same time weak piglet prices as compared to the pig prices in the period before 2010, the mast appeared more economical than producing piglets. Sow housing in Germany has shrunk so much that it has developed a growing piglets import requirement of currently 11 million pigs per year.

Approximately 50% of the Dutch piglets after Germanywere still in 2010. Today, there are already 62%. The High German pig deficit leads to attractive prices relatively low transport costs from the Netherlands in the border North West finishing Center.

Compared to Holland the Danish pig exports increased significantly more in recent years. But Germany's share has fallen from previous 70% to 55%. The Netherlands to compensate more than twice as much deliver what after Germany, the Danes of less piglets. The Danish pig exports go increasingly in the direction of Poland and other Eastern European countries.

The Dutch exports to Poland has been more than halved. Also the other Eastern European countries have reduced their imports from the Netherlands to Hungary. In addition to price and quality, ultimately also the transport costs decide the relative excellence of the countries of destination.

The Dutch pig imports back to 5,000 units per week or 6% compared with the previous year have fallen to half year 2014 . Danish exports back evolved after the may record by over 1 million pigs per month back on average numbers of 850,000. Unfortunately, current partitions available to the countries of destination not available.
