June futures decreased $1.65 compared to last week’s June futures used for the crush and historical basis is unchanged from last week. Breakeven prices are based on closing futures prices on Nov. 13. 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.
