Buyers are looking to get pigs laid in this week or next with hopes of getting them marketed by August 15. Feeder pigs prices will start to fall, and probably quite drastically towards the end of April and especially as we get into May. Supply and demand of SEW pigs is in fairly decent balance right now.
