Pig farmers still making a loss in Paraná despite price hike

Prices paid to pig farmers in the state of Paraná, the third-largest pig producing state in Brazil, are showing signs of improvement, but still do not cover production costs. According to a survey by the Department of Rural Economy (Deral), the average price in June was R$ 1.84 / kg, down 8.5% on May and 0.5% down on June 2011. However, from July 9 to 13 in Toledo, the largest producing region in Paraná, prices reached R$ 2.00. The production cost in Paraná is R$ 2.39 / kg.

According to Deral, as of July there is a natural tendency for pork consumption to rise, with the last quarter of the year accounting for most consumption. This is expected to be repeated this year.
