Summary of the Farrow to Finish Swine Enterprise Budgets - 2009 to 2013

The Swine Enterprise Budgets provide a guide to determining the costs of production for a swine enterprise. The cost figures are estimates based on information from a variety of sources within the Ontario industry. They are not obtained from an actual survey. Monthly budgets are calculated based on the current market hog and feed prices to provide an indication of the trend of income and expenses. Individual farm figures will vary depending on the resources, management, production, market conditions, risk, and financial arrangements!
