Costs of feeding livestock should be much lower by midsummer if crop prospects continue favorable. The price outlook points toward a strong demand for pork next fall and winter. So as long as crop prospects continue good, we can see little merit in pushing hogs for an early fall market. Rather, the advantage lies in using a maximum of low priced feeds.
