DK: 40% of piglets are exported

Denmark's pig sector 2016: less slaughter - more piglets exports

After evaluating recent pig counting in Denmark with 1 Oct. 15 deadline remains the number of pigs in Denmark just at the level of the results to the same period of the previous year.  

From the documents is to infer that the slaughter 2016 will decrease while the number of piglets to export continue to rise . Therefore Denmark continues a development proposed for years, which essentially is characterized by the high density of livestock, which leads to the limits of the carrying capacity of the land.

The pig slaughter Däenamrks should be 2015 less especially as of the 2nd quarter year 2016 compared to the last half of the year. The usual seasonal increase in 2nd half year 2016 shows only small increases and thus lags behind previous years. A relief of the offer of pork from Denmark benefit from the currently overstrained industry.

The stable sows stocks of Denmark's lead with increasing productivity to a growing piglets glut that is housed on the export market. For 2016, pig exports of 12.55 million units are expected. The increase to the year 2015 is around 11.5%. The export piglets accounted for approximately 40% of piglets in Denmark. According to the observations of the last few years, Germany of largest piglet customer remains, but the absolute numbers remain for years at the same level.

Danish piglets after Poland transportedare on a rising scale. Background is the massive reduction of Polish stocks of sows in the structurally unfavourable small stocks under 20 sows.  On the demand side, greater styes with foreign participation have appeared in Poland, which are geared to the supply of sufficiently large quantities. Denmark itself is involved in the construction in Poland its animal feed plants and breeding associations. It is only a matter of time that Danish slaughterhouses in Poland on a larger scale will act.
