Hog slaughter has run well ahead of a year earlier for most of this year because of the increased hog production. Slaughter for the rest of the fall should now show the same percentage boost over the previous year; there was a smaller increase in late-spring pigs. The low spot in hog prices probably will come in late November or sometime in December.
