Pig exports of the Netherlands are falling

High point of Dutch pig exports exceeded?

Shift Dutch pig farms on the environment more favourable piglet production has resulted to rising surpluses of piglets in the past which have been exported to the EU internal market.

In Denmark , the similar factors were effective.

An upper limit has been reached with the year 2010 of approximately 6 million pig exports, which has been exceeded since then not again. In the last 1.5 years until the recent time a decline of Dutch pig exports is emerging.
