Hog Market Information
One of the keys to a successful farm business is to track, understand and evaluate the trends and potential impacts that market information will have on a farm business and the Ontario pork industry. To harness the power of market knowledge, pork producers and industry stakeholders require accurate, timely, current and relative market information. The objective of Hog Market Information (weekly, monthly and yearly) is to organize and transform market data (production and financial) into products that will enable producers and industry stakeholders to enhance the quality of their production, financial and marketing decisions and understanding of the market place.
