Hog Outlook: Fabulous Week for Hog Prices

US - This was a fabulous week for hog prices. Thursday's negotiated carcass price for plant delivered hogs averaged $72.96/cwt which is $9.96 higher than a week earlier. The price rally is being driven by a seasonal decline in hog slaughter and a sharp drop in slaughter weights, write Ron Plain and Scott Brown, University of Missouri.
