Abstract

This research compares pork production in two types of production facilities. Information for the fourth group of pigs, which was fed from June 1999 to October 1999 at the Rhodes Research and Demonstration Farm, is provided. Results will be evaluated using the actual production efficiency numbers and the average or typical costs for feeder pigs, feed, etc., along with average market hog prices. This allows for comparison of expected costs and returns for normal input cost and hog price conditions.

Keywords: Animal Science, Economics
