Abstract

If the lean hog carcass futures prices are any indicator, producers should have four or five months of very good prices. Feed costs are down from this period a year ago and futures prices through September are very good. If actual prices are at or near futures expectations, profits will be good. Beyond September the profit picture changes quickly.
