There is a possibility of improvement for the next week with the entry of the salary mass, but the difference between animal price and production costs are still a concern
This Thursday (September 1), the swine exchanges to market the animals in the independent market showed differences between the main squares, between decline, stability or even lack of agreement between producers and slaughterhouses.
The price in São Paulo remained stable at R$ 7.46/kg live, according to an agreement between swine farmers and slaughterhouses, according to information from the São Paulo Association of Swine Breeders (APCS).
“Maintenance due to the fact that, basically, consumption has not yet improved due to the salary mass, which only comes in next week. The price of the slaughtered animal had an adjustment, with the carcass at R$ 9.80 to R$ 10, 20 a kilo, and this adjustment in the carcass made us able to maintain the price, but with the expectation that from next week there will be a positive realignment in vivo, since there is a trend of realignment in the table by the meatpackers in the price of the slaughtered animal”, said Valdomiro Ferreira, president of APCS.
In the Minas Gerais market, last week there was an agreement of R$ 7.00/kg, but this week the Pig Exchange was open, with a suggested value of 7.30/kg live, according to data from the Association of Pig Farmers of the State of Minas General (Asemg).
“The market in the week has behaved better than the previous week. We also have the positive factor of the beginning of the month, and the offer of the farms remains controlled.”, pointed out the entity’s market consultant, Alvimar Jalles.
In Santa Catarina, according to data from the Santa Catarina Association of Pig Breeders (ACCS), the price of live animals dropped from R$ 6.94/kg live to R$ 6.72/kg live.
“If we analyze it, we are going in circles. On August 4th we went from R$ 6.76/kg live, on August 11th R$ 6.94/kg live, maintained on the 18th, on the 25th it dropped to R$ 6.72/kg live and now R$ 6.65/kg live. On the other hand, the production cost has been increasing, making it difficult to believe in continuing in the activity. Losivanio de Lorenzi, president of ACCS.
In the state of Paraná, considering the weekly average (between 08/25/2022 and 08/31/2022), the indicator of the price per live kilo from the Laboratory of Economic Research in Swine (Lapesui) of the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) ) fell by 5.60%, closing the week at R$6.32/kg live.
