Demand for feed remains subdued due to the benign weather conditions. Grass growth continues to remain strong and many animals are now out on grass for the time being at least. The demand for feed wheat remains reasonable however demand for barley remains weak and this is continuing to be a worry as the feeding season window narrows.
No change from Irish processor with Irish pig farmers receiving €1.38-1.42c/kg. Demand from factories is meeting supply with no issues getting an extra load of pigs away this week. Last weeks kill remained high with just over 70 thousand throughput.
