The BPEX Pig Health Scheme (BPHS) is an industry-sponsored health monitoring scheme established in 2008. It monitors English pigs at slaughter for incidence and severity of animal disease on member farms, to help pig producers reduce the level of sub-clinical disease within their herds. Individual data can then be benchmarked against the disease average of others within the scheme.  Assessments are carried out at designated abattoirs by specialist veterinarians.

1. Uplift for EU weaner prices

EU weaner prices have begun to recover seasonally, boosted by firming finished pig prices, but are still well below year earlier levels.

2. Small increase in EU pig herd

26 of the 28 EU Member States have now reported their December 2014 census data to the European Commission, identifying a 1% increase in the total pig herd, compared with December 2013.

3. Producer margins shrinking but still positive in Q4

The average GB cost of pig production in the final quarter of 2014, as estimated by AHDB/BPEX, was just over 142p/kg (£116 per head).
