Swine Budgets

Estimating cost of production and returns

The monthly Swine Budget provides a guide and format to estimate the cost of production for a swine enterprise. The cost estimates and assumptions are based on information from a variety of industry sources. The cost figures are not obtained from an actual survey; therefore, adjustments and interpretations are necessary when applying these figures to a particular business enterprise. Individual farm figures will vary depending on the resources, management, production, health status, size, market conditions, risk, and financial arrangements. You can subscribe to receive the budgets by email by sending a request to: omafra.livestock@ontario.ca

For more information on cost of production budgeting see Guide to Cost of Production Budgeting or Farm Business Calculators on the OMAFRA website.
