How's the hog business treating you?

Smiley Very Happy  With hogs in the profitable range surely we can find something to talk about.   

 

Bean meal down,  corn down,  fuel down and hog prices UP! 

 

It has taken almost a year for us to get through conception problems.   My farrowing house is FULL!   My nursery is FULL!   Finishing buildings and lots are not fullSmiley Sad

 

The past week I have been overflowing with farrowing gilts.   I finally weaned a room a couple days early on Thursday.  By Friday afternoon the crates were filled.    I even have 6 litters in pens with straw.   Unfortunately,  they are laying on more that I would want or expect in the pens.     

 

Now if I only had full finishing buildings so we could take advantage of  these prices.
