Abstract

Risks associated with independent feeder-pig production have prompted producers to seek alternative production and marketing methods. A means of reducing risk has developed through contract feeder-pig producing. Research results indicate that slightly risk-averse producers required contract base payments ranging from $7.50 to $28.50 per head. Strongly risk-averse producers required contract base payments ranging from $2.50 to $17.75 per head. The lower end of the ranges is for a low-profit producer. The upper end of the ranges is for a high-profit producer.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996
