It is not getting any better – The losses are continuing in the swine industry. This past month feed prices kept going up while hog prices improved some but not near enough. Losses in the open market are still close to $40 a head and everyone keeps wondering when will it get better and what do prices have to get to before we start getting profitable? Well, the first thing we need to do is to somehow get supply reduced. The last cold storage report shows that we have an abundant supply of product. Even though exports have been very good we need to reduce supply to get any significant improvement in prices.
