Using this budget, farmers can estimate the costs and returns associated with feeder pig production. Table 1 presents estimates for a confinement feeder pig operation in Missouri with a production system of 23 pigs per sow per year and pigs sold at 40 pounds each. 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 estimate your operation’s costs and returns for 2022.
