Pork Powerhouses: Who said what?

Agriculture.com Staff 09/04/2008 @ 9:51am

Here is a collection of quotes from the Pork Powerhouses. Have fun guessing who said what!

  • "Sows that should be sold are being bred right now."


  • "Mortality in our finishing barns is the lowest it's ever been."


  • "High productivity is another reason the herd needs cut more. We are averaging 12 born alive and 10 weaned."


  • "There are a couple of 600-sow farms and a 3,000 near here that have shut down."


  • "There are so many sows on the market, we can't get a bid."


  • "Most people's cost of production is up around $60."


  • "There has been more liquidation than has been reported."


  • "There will end up being a lot more packer ownership. Who else will be able to buy the guys who go under? The banks will own them first, then they will unload them on the only people left -- the packers."


  • "For the right price, we would sell, sure."


  • "Two or three times we were within a week of major liquidation and the marketplace changed dramatically. We were on the verge."
