Cash Feeder Pigs Average $36.15 This Week, Down $0.87 From Last Week

Looking at hog sales in March 2020 using April 2020 futures, the weaner breakeven was $61.69, down $1.84 for the week. Feed costs were down $1.53 per head. April futures decreased $0.68 compared to last week’s April futures used for the crush and historical basis is declined from last week by $0.98 per cwt. Breakeven prices are based on closing futures prices on Sept. 6, 2019. The breakeven price is the estimated maximum you could pay for a weaner pig and breakeven when selling the finished hog.

 

Note that the weaner pig profitability calculations provide weekly insight into the relative value of pigs based on assumptions that may not be reflective of your individual situation. In addition, these calculations do not consider market supply and demand dynamics for weaner pigs and space availability.

 

From the National Direct Delivered Feeder Pig Report: Cash-traded weaner pig volume was below average this week with 27,075 head being reported which is 63% of the 52-week average. Cash prices were $22.19, down $0.05 from a week ago. The low to high range was $16 to $32. Formula-priced weaners were down $0.77 this week at $37.95.
