Cull sow prices are potentially very sensitive to a no-deal Brexit, as at the moment cull sow carcases are typically exported to Europe. Under a no-deal scenario, this trade would face additional tariffs, and a lack of alternative markets means farmgate sow prices would be expected to fall. While income from cull sow sales makes up a relatively small percentage of producer incomes, this change would be unwelcome at a time when producers are, on average, already in a loss-making situation.

We’ve looked across sectors and our analysis has highlighted that the sheep industry is potentially very sensitive to a “hard” Brexit. A loss of access to European markets could be very disruptive. Under a hard Brexit the UK is expected to be over supplied with sheep meat. How much depends on how trade between New Zealand and the UK and EU changes due to tariffs put in place. We expect UK prices to decline and EU prices to increase relative to each other, which might lead New Zealand to switch destination to the EU instead of the UK, although there might be a limit to how much it can do this.
