Slaughter cattle: Current price quotation

The official price quotation serves to ensure market transparency in the slaughter cattle sector.

Market activity in the slaughter cattle sector is subject to strong fluctuations due to the constant change of supply and demand. In addition, there are a large number of suppliers and customers, which makes the market overview very difficult. Nevertheless, in order to ensure market transparency, there is the instrument of official price quotation.

The monitoring is essentially based on the Meat Act with the corresponding implementing ordinances as well as the Trade Class Act with the respective ordinances for the individual animal species.

  • Meat Act (FlG),
  • Ordinance on price reporting for carcasses and their labelling (1.FlGDV).
