Cash Feeder Pig Prices Average $65.43, Down $2.24 Last Week

... When you consider that today’s purchased weaner would be sold in December 2022 using February 2023 futures, the weaner breakeven was $8.71, down $10.40 for the week. Feed costs were up $0.44 per head, and February futures increased $4.10 compared to last week’s futures, while historical basis is declined from last week by $8.93 per cwt.

 

The “weaner pig breakeven” is an all-in break-even considering fixed costs (e.g., housing and labor) that would be incurred by the buyer. However, many buyers of weaners have empty space and therefore will incur these fixed costs whether the buildings are stocked with weaners. For those producers with empty space, the maximum price a buyer could pay for a weaner pig and breakeven is the “margin over variable costs,” which is $27.98.

 

Note that the weaner pig profitability calculations provide weekly insight into the relative value of pigs based on assumptions that may not be reflective of your individual situation.
