This budget presents information useful to swine farmers. Table 1 presents estimates for a hog finishing operation in Missouri that purchases 103 head of 40 pound pigs and sells 100 head of 280 pound market hogs. Assumptions were based on price forecasts as of November 2020. Detailed assumptions and feed requirements are summarized in Tables 2 and 3. The production practices used to develop these cost estimates are common for swine farms in Missouri. Farmers are encouraged to modify this budget to fit their operation.
