The to the 1st Oct 2014 provided fixed herds in Denmark have been identified to 4.6% higher than the same time of last year. The fattening herds between 4.7% and 6.7% have risen particularly strongly. While the heavy pigs mid-November are already slaughtered, now comes the strong cast of lower slaughter weight on the market. It is so to expect in Denmark with a rising Lebendangebot in the next 2 months.
