Livestock census result: 2% fewer pigs in Germany than in may 2015

As of the date of 3 November 2015, 27.5 million pigs were kept in Germany. According to provisional results of the livestock survey, this is the lowest level since November 2011. Which is in comparison with the previous year counting decline even - 2.8%.

The number of pig-holding companies is to 25,700 units fell back. More than 60% of the holders keep pigs in holdings exceeding 500 stable places. The emphasis with a 25% share of stock sizes between 1,000 and 2,000 animals.

The number of sows of almost 2.1 million units to 1.99 million backgoes for may 2014. Piglet producing farms were counted only 9,600 units. Compared to the May 15 count the decline amounts to - 2.8%.  The average sow inventory price can be calculated approximately 205 sows per holder.

In regional terms , the relatively largest inventory declines in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (- 12.2% and - 28.900 animals), Brandenburg (4-10% or 24,100 animals), as well as in Baden-Württemberg (- 5.5% or 38.800Tiere) have been identified. The absolute size are in North Rhine-Westphalia with 57,100 (but only - 1.6%) fewer pigs and in Lower Saxony with 37,000 (but only 0.9%) the largest reductions in inventory has been established.

The development of the stock structure of interest is for the assessment of the Lebendangebots in the coming weeks and months . Pigs with a live weight of 80 kg & m. at the time of the cattle count on 3rd Nov 2015 are already slaughtered.

Of interest for the upcoming battle traffic is detected-3.7% decrease of the animals in the weight category of 50 to 80 kg, taking the young pigs from 25 to less than 50 kg in the established order by - 0.9%, as well as the decline of piglets by - 3.1%. The domestic slaughter pigs offer should be 2016 smaller in the 1st half of the year. The development in the other EU countries, remains where anticipated in the tendency is that similar waste reduction processes take place.

The significant decline in sows stocks including the gilts suggests that the piglet supply from domestic production fails again smaller for the remainder of the year. 

Germany remains a piglet deficit zone with an import requirement of approximately 12 million young animals or 20% of the needs of the young. The pig suppliers are in 1. Line Denmark and Holland. While the Dutch exports have no increases for years, the Danish pig producers have can achieve still increases. The additional animals are been loaded but almost exclusively to Poland. The Danish pig exports stagnate after Germany at the level of 6.5 million units per year. In the case of regional deficits, the delivery flows can be diverted quickly.
