Will the hog markets stabilize anytime soon amid the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDV) impact? Not for awhile suggests AgStar’s Kent Bang in today’s hog blog. Pork cutout prices are at record levels and packers are cutting back in anticipation of tight hog supplies. As we start to see what the PEDV hole looks like, it is important to keep an eye on the markets.

AgStar's Swine Specialists provide more insights on PEDV and the volatile hog market in our swine blog and through our AgStar Edge video library
