The ISU Swine Business Record Program is a whole enterprise analysis of financial and production values designed to meet the needs of Iowa pork producers. The program provides a business summary for each individual producer and also includes a statewide summary that is widely referenced throughout the industry and recognized as a source of benchmark values for pork production. The annual state summary that separates producers into high profit, average, and low profit groups should be used by producers to determine their competitive position, set production and financial goals for the future, and determine priorities in financial and production decisions.
