Hog Production Profitable in 2001, Red Ink on the Way

About This Publication

For the third year in a row, total returns exceeded total costs for hog producers in 2001. Good market hog prices, especially during the second and third quarter, and continual low feed costs were the main factors for the positive profit margins. However, increased pork production, sluggish demand and increasing feed costs will result in negative profit margins for producers in 2002.
