Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

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.

Iowa State Research Farm Progress Reports

This research is aimed at comparing two types of facilities for pork production--hoops and confinement systems. This report provides results from a group of pigs finished during the winter season. Hogs were on test from December to April. Results are evaluated by using the actual production efficiency values 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 costs and hog price conditions.
