ABSA Agri Trends 25/10: Hides & skins prices
Hides: The current price is 2.8% lower than prices were a month ago and the hide price is 62.9% lower than prices were a year ago. The global hide market remains under pressure. Prices remain weak locally and globally. The worldwide hide supply continues to grow while end-user demand continues to decline. Local prices may go down even further as the market already has enough stock for orders this year. The automotive companies are shutting down early December.Skins: The price for dorper skins remained unchanged at R23.33/skin and merino skins remained unchanged at R39.29/skin this week. Compared to a year ago the price of dorper skins is 25.34% lower and the price of merino skins is 57.69% lower. - Wessel Lemmer, senior agricultural economist, Absa Group.
