The income shown for the market pig in the recently posted October 2014 OMAFRA Swine budget was $244.45, up over $52.00 from the October 2013 Swine Budget. The difference was realized through an increased market pig base price (up $40/ckg, 100 index) and a heavier dressed carcass weight (up 3.54 kg). The increased market hog income along with a decreased farrow to finish feed cost (down $7.83 per market pig) led to a net return improvement of over $60 per market hog from October 2013.

The Net Return for Farrow to Finish in the recently posted April 2014 OMAF Swine budget was $103.19 per pig, a historical high and over $130.00 more than the April of 2013. The market pig base price in April 2014 was $248.51 which is up more $100.00/ckg than this time last year.  The higher price in 2014 was a reflection of record high U.S. market hog prices and a decrease of about 8 cents in the Canadian dollar value compared to April 2013. The farrow to finish feed cost was down by over $12.00 in April 2014 due to lower corn priceseven with the Hot Carcass Weight increasing by 3.51 kg year over year. The Net Return Farrow to Finish ($/pig) over this time period is at historical highs for producers after many years of red ink and low prices.  For more information go to 2014 April Monthly Swine Budget .
