251: Pork: What effect do heavy pigs have on the SPP?
Written by AHDB
This week’s guests:
Jen Waters, Head of Knowledge Exchange (Pork)
Duncan Wyatt, Lead Analyst (Livestock)
Lauren Dimmack, Animal Health & Welfare Scientist
Christine Walsh, Head of Transitional Support
Felicity Rusk, Analyst (Dairy & Livestock)
In this pork-focused episode, we discuss the standard pig price (SPP) with Duncan Wyatt and Jen waters. We talk about out what does and doesn’t contribute to it, the impact of heavy pigs, and whether the price rises as quickly as it falls.
We also talk about export health certificates (EHC) – what’s changed, what you need to do to comply, and the latest position with Trichinella testing.
