NOTE: Prices are quoted on a per head basis delivered to the buyers farm.
These prices include freight and fees on a farm to farm basis.  Most lots of
40-60 weight pigs have a sliding value from the negotiated weight basis which
is calculated on the actual average weight of the load plus or minus .25-.40
per pound.  Some early weaned lots have a slide of .50-1.00 per pound.  Early
weaned pigs are under 21 days old.  Estimated lean value is projected to use
slaughter weights with normal confinement feeding conditions.  Vaccination
and health program values are not included but health status should be
disclosed.
