According to leaders, new price lists for slaughtered animals are being created in order to encourage increases for live animals
This Thursday (9) the main pig trading exchanges in the independent market saw price increases, with the exception of Paraná. The report from leaders is the proximity to the end of year festivities, a period in which sales traditionally improve, and also the rise in the price of pig carcasses, which helps to motivate increases in the value of the live animal.
In São Paulo there was an increase, from R$ 6.83/kg to R$ 6.93/kg live, with an agreement between pig farmers and slaughterhouses, according to data from the São Paulo Association of Pig Breeders (APCS).
“The market had a new rise, motivated by the improvement in the market for slaughtered pigs. A new table is being proposed by the slaughterhouses starting at R$ 10.00 per arroba for slaughtered pigs, and this strengthens the way for producers to be able to increase the arroba for live animal”, said the president of APCS, Valdomiro Ferreira.
In the Minas Gerais market, the value rose, going from R$ 6.50/kg live to R$ 6.80/kg live this week, with agreement, according to the Association of Pig Farmers of the State of Minas Gerais (Asemg).
“Very firm market with the typical year-end demand already being perceived”, said the Association’s market consultant, Alvimar Jalles.
According to information from the Santa Catarina Association of Pig Breeders (ACCS), the value of the animal increased, going from R$ 6.15/kg live to R$ 6.20/kg live this week.
“The market has seen a slight improvement, but still far from what the pig farmer needs. But it’s already a good sign. Who knows, maybe now in these last weeks of the year we will have a little clearer light and the market will be able to recover better”, highlighted the entity’s president, Losivanio de Lorenzi.
In the state of Paraná, considering the weekly average (between 11/02/2023 and 11/08/2023), the indicator of the price of a live kilo from the Laboratory of Economic Research in Swine (Lapesui) of the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR ) fell 0.28%, closing the week at R$5.95/kg live.
“It is expected that the price of live pigs will increase next week, and could be quoted at R$6.11/kg live”, informs the Lapesui report.
