THE CATTLE MARKET
FATSTOCK AND FORTNIGHTLY STORE MARKET
Hull Livestock Market – 6th September 2021 – Fatstock & Store Market
Forward – 607 head of stock including 80 Cattle, 371 Sheep and 156 Pigs.
Commercial pigs looking a better trade this week, with demand there for good quality pigs. There are major issues in the sow meat supply chain at the moment, with Germany culling a huge number of sows in recent weeks, this has impacted trade at home, with both live and deadweight trades being affected, younger cleanish sows leading the way for the local manufacturing trade.
