Dutch pig exports reach capacity limits

Pig exports of the Netherlands

Export for years the Netherlands annually up to 6 million pigs in European landlocked countries. The reason is that the Dutch pig density reaches up to the capacity of environmental influences. In this case, the piglet production compared to the pig is more competitive. The result is a shift of the relations in favour of less polluting sow housing to be observed for years.

The annual increases of previous years pig exports has however gone. Since rd.  Dutch exports to a capacity of approximately 6 million animals per year stagnate 5 years.

Germany is the biggest importer of Dutch piglets with approximately 4 million pieces or 2/3 share. The Dutch pig exports from 2 to 3.6 million units rose in the period from 2005 to 2011. In the last 3 years the annual pig deliveries have remained constant after Germany but with about 4 million shares.  Close to transport to the German pig stronghold with a substantial deficit of piglet leads to a Dutch competitive advantage over the competitors of Denmark or other piglets surplus areas.

Second largest import country Dutch Ferkelherkünfte is the neighboring country Belgium Luxembourg with an annual import volume of approximately 1.5 million pigs per year. The figures are relatively constant for years.

Changing import volumes has Poland. Imports rose disproportionately in the years 2009/10. In recent years, Dutch piglets deliveries under the order of 0.8 million shares stabilize. Denmark is stepped in as a replacement supplier for Polish imports of piglets.

The other pig exports to other EU countries are indeed broad, but calculable amount in each. Wide pig transports to Romania, Hungary, Croatia and Italy or Spain are possible, because piglet price differences are sufficiently large.  It is striking that the previous exports hardly a role for France.

Interregional trade of piglets is the result of an area specialization in areas with predominantly pig and piglet production. Different operating structures and environmental impacts regional are the driving factors in normally. Appropriate spatially different piglet prices are necessary for trade in pigs to cover the transportation and marketing costs.
