FEEDSTUFFS PRECISION PORK: Profit outlook takes shape as combines start rolling

Cargill Commercial Swine Director Mark Hulsebus takes a look at the feed and hog markets, and explains the latest trends in feed prices and lean hog values as combines start rolling in earnest across the Midwest.

In this episode of Feedstuffs Precision Pork, Mark Hulsebus, Swine Commercial Director at Cargill, offers some animal feed and hog market perspective. The headwinds of inflation dramatically altered the opportunity to lock in profits in the pork sector over the course of the summer, and now the grain markets are in "wait and see" mode until getting some more empirical data from combines rolling across the Corn Belt. 

Hulsebus discusses the current demand picture for pork and what that's meant for lean hog futures, and provides an outlook on  what the profit picture looks like over the next 12 months and where opportunities to lock in profits might exist.

These are uncertain times, and it will pay dividends to be well-prepared. If you have questions on this week’s episode or want to discuss something not covered, feel free to ASK MARK at [email protected].
