Re: Hog prices

[ Edited ]

I don`t know how many hogs are sold on the open market that`s quoted these days, probably less than 5%.  But those that still do, it`s literally feast or famine, they do really if there`s a Pedv virus and they escape it they`re in the chips, but it gets ugly when the pig factories are crankin` em out.   But the market is there just to roughly determine a contract price, any worse and it`d be like the catfish or wool market.   Like musical chairs, if you aren`t in front of a chair when the music stops, you`re out.
