Agricultural market reports

The agricultural market reports, which are based on surveys, provide weekly and quarterly average prices for clean cattle and sheep and for breeding animals, as well as for pigs, broiler chickens, potatoes and cereals in Northern Ireland.

Purpose of the report

The information in the Agricultural Market Report is also used by the food and farming industry for the purposes of lobbying Government and for making commercial choices related to local agricultural markets. The Agricultural Market Report data is available on an historical basis which facilitates academic research examining trends and market interactions. Contact details are available in the publication, for you to send feedback or ask questions about the information provided. Further details are available in the methodology, notes and revisions policy.

For the month of September 2020, one of the pig plants has sent in revised data for the “Finished Clean Pigs (pence per kg deadweight)” price, due to reductions being applied.
