Livestock Trading Information for Pigs

Meadow Quality provides an independent source of advice and is ideally placed to help producers to maximize their returns. We aim to find the right combination of weight range, grading profile and premium to consistently match their requirements.

We know that every producer’s farm system is different and our marketing is tailored to reflect this. The relationships we have developed over thirty five years of pig marketing enable us to deliver real and tangible benefits to our finished pig producers.

We work closely with a number of pig processors throughout the country, marketing around 8,000 pigs per week. This includes pigs from pork to bacon weight, on a weekly or contractual basis.
