Using this budget, farmers can estimate the costs and returns of finishing hogs in Missouri. Table 1 presents estimates for a confinement 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 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.
