there are many hogs being raised now, but farmers are not making a profit. from what I know farmers are cutting back on numbers of hogs raised. I also think this fall many cows will be sold with their calves. this will reduce the cattle on feed numbers in 18 months out. with current input costs we should see lighter weight fats which should help. HOGS AND FATS WILL GO UP IN PRICE, GIVE IT A LITTLE TIME.
