Market analysis

 

Piglet prices were flat amid sluggish trade as most farmers baulked at sliding hog prices, high replenishment costs, and concerns that piglets procured now would mature into the off-season next year after the Spring Festival.

 

 

Market forecast

 

High rearing risks will continue to crimp piglet demand in the short term. However, low market availability stemming from commercial farms' unwillingness to sell, should support piglet prices at current high levels.
