Abstract

This article reports on a study examining the amount of labor used in hoop structures for finishing market hogs. The labor estimates were obtained from farmers who finish hogs in such facilities. The results show that labor use is not substantially different from confinement facilities. Areas for consideration also are identified in this article.
