Abstract

High-profit producers in the ISU Swine Business Record Program achieve the best combination of efficient production levels and lower than average production costs. Producers in the top 10% and top one-third profit groups had lower than average production costs/cwt in all feed and nonfeed categories in the 1997 state summary. These advantages are due to improved management, genetics, and effective implementation of new technologies. Average market price received was similar for all profit groups.
