Abstract

The purpose of this article is to develop a breakeven budget for a group of finishing pigs fed in bedded hoop barns at the ISU Western Research Farm, Castana, Iowa. The pigs were fed for the niche pork market. The pigs were on a comparison feeding trial, but because there were no major differences in pig performance, the pigs were treated as a uniform group for budgeting purposes.
