The average piglet price in 500 rural markets across the country was RMB 25.85/kg. According to statistics from this website, the price of piglets in yuan rose to RMB 20.81/kg this Wednesday, and the price of piglets continued to rise this week.

The price of pig food: pig food rose to 6.38 this week, an increase of 0.18 compared to last week. The price of corn was 2.76 yuan/kg, an increase of 0.02 yuan/kg from last week. This week’s self-reproduction and self-support loss was 21.20 yuan/head, a decrease of 71.85 yuan/head from last week’s loss. After rain and snow, the temperature has picked up, new corn fever and mold in the main domestic production areas have increased, and it is difficult for grassroots growers to store it. Traders such as drying towers are more cautious in building warehouses. The market circulation remained high, suppressing the weak price market. The winter of the main corn producing areas in northern China this year came earlier than previous years. The new season corn encountered strong snowfall at the end of the harvest, which superimposed logistics delays, which further delayed the increase of new grains. It is expected that corn prices will continue to be moderately biased in most of November. The strong trend is the main trend. After the second half of the year, as the supply of corn further increases, there is a chance for its price to weaken.
Market summary: The weekly average price of live pigs continued to rise this week, and the price showed a downward trend during the week. After the increase in pork prices, downstream consumers’ enthusiasm for pork consumption has cooled, and their resistance has increased. After the residents responded to the call to stock food and meat, the purchasing power of fresh meat has also indirectly decreased, and the enthusiasm of traders to get the goods has also declined, and slaughter companies Baitiao’s delivery speed slowed down. In addition, there are still a lot of frozen pork stocks in the market, which will continue to be exported in the near future. The overall supply of pork is sufficient. The increase in pork prices is not as high as the increase in the price of pigs. This limits the increase in the price of pigs. The pig price formed support. It is expected that the forecast of pig prices in November-December will be mainly volatile and strong, and there may be frequent fluctuations during this period.
In addition, according to data released by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, the national stock of reproductive sows at the end of October was 43.48 million, a decrease of 2.49% from September. The number of reproductive sows has declined for three consecutive months, and the national stock of reproductive sows continues to be orderly.
