Production efficiency creates profitability challenges for pork producers – Voice Of Muscatine


Production efficiency creates profitability challenges for pork producers

A livestock economist says there’s some effort to pull back production in the hog industry.  

University of Missouri’s Scott Brown says breeding inventory was down 2 percent in the latest report.  “When you look at sows farrowed and farrowing intentions both intending to run 2 to 3% below previous years, that tells us we’re trying to cut on that side,” he says. 

But, he tells Brownfield, improved efficiency continues to create profitability challenges for producers.
