Podcast: Joe Kerns: Hog and grain prices and the future of their economics


Ever since Covid began, grain and hog prices have been a whirlwind of fluctuations that have had some serious impacts on swine production. With the current market having seen such large fluctuations in price, it is important that we understand where we are at and where we will be in the next quarter. In this episode, I talk with Joe Kerns about those exact topics: where we are economically, where we may be in late 2022 and early 2023, and what we should do to best increase our net revenue as an industry.

“Don’t be afraid to let your feed conversions escalate a little bit because that will make you more money which is a major part of sustainability within our industry.” – Joe Kerns
