Cash Weaner Pig Prices Average $19.86, Up $1.29 Last Week

Looking at hog sales in March 2021 using April 2021 futures, the weaner breakeven was $43.35, down $1.94 for the week. Feed costs were up $0.18 per head. April futures increased $1.25 compared to last week’s April futures used for the crush and historical basis is declined from last week by $2.10 per cwt. Breakeven prices are based on closing futures prices on September 4. 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.

is calculated on the actual average weight of the load plus or minus .25-.40

per pound.  Some early weaned lots have a slide of .50-1.00 per pound.  Early

weaned pigs are under 21 days old.  Estimated lean value is projected to use

slaughter weights with normal confinement feeding conditions.  Vaccination

and health program values are not included but health status should be
