Margins in livestock farming dropped considerably in summer

01/10/2020

The monthly margins for a dairy farm amounted to 14,000 euros in August 2020. This was 7% lower than in the same month last year and 20% lower than the ten-year average. The decrease is caused by higher feed costs, a lower milk price and lower cattle prices.

For a fattening pig farm, the monthly margins in August amounted to 9,100 euros, or 25% lower than in the same month last year. From mid-March, revenue prices dropped significantly. Meat exports in particular were under pressure for a long time due to restrictive corona measures. Monthly margins in sow farming dropped by 85% in August compared to the same month last year. This is a result of strongly decreased piglet prices. The peak of the previous months is over, but the moving annual average remains at a high level.

The margins of layer-hen farms were cut in half due to lower egg prices. August saw margins of 8,400 euros, which is 10,000 euros lower than August last year, but still above the long-term average. For broiler-chick farms, the margins were also halved. In August, they were more than 12,000 euros lower than in the same month last year. Revenues fell due to the corona crisis. The moving annual average in August amounted to 232,000 euros, which is almost 70,000 euros below the long-term average.
