Using this budget, farmers raising hogs from farrow to finish can plan their costs and returns in 2022. Table 1 presents estimates for a confinement farrow to finish operation in Missouri with production of 23 pigs per sow per year and selling market hogs at 280 pounds. Assumptions were based on price forecasts as of October 2021. Detailed assumptions and feed requirements are summarized in Tables 2 and 3. The production practices used to develop these cost estimates are common for Missouri swine farms. Use the “Your estimate” column to plan your operation’s costs and returns for 2022.
