GB deadweight pig prices (UK spec)

Updated weekly

The APP (All Pig Price) is the GB average deadweight pig price achieved by producers each week. The SPP (Standard Pig Price) is the average price for GB standard pigs, those that have not received a premium for the production system, feed regime or breed. The prices are collected from voluntary surveys. These prices are for carcases dressed to UK specification.

In the week ending 25 July, the UK-spec SPP averaged 162.27p/kg, down 0.41p on the week. The measure is now 12.22p above the same week last year and 18.64p above the five-year average. Industry reports suggest that weaker retail and export demand dampened prices. 

Estimated slaughter fell by 400 head on the week to 156,800 head. Carcase weights averaged 87.17kg, 690g up on the week.

In the week ending 18 July, the UK-spec APP fell 0.23p on the week to average 165.49p/kg. The measure is now 13.54p above the same week last year and 19.36p above the five-year average.
