Title: U.S. Hog Marketing Contract Study
Author: Grimes, Glenn; Plain, Ronald L.
Keywords: pork market

Abstract: The January 2009 data for hog marketing arrangements or marketing contracts in the USDA Mandatory Price Reporting (MPR) system was summarized for this report. However, participation in the reporting system was voluntary in January 2006, 2007, and 2008. In 2006 Congress renewed the law making reporting mandatory, but all the necessary rules for implementation were not completed by January 2008. In January 2009 reporting was again mandatory. However, we believe the voluntary and mandatory data are comparable between years because virtually all of the same plants reported each year.
