The six-day moving average carcass weight - - -

dropped to 214.60#. Year-over-year the carcass weight has fallen to +9.63#.

Most of the decline in the carcass weight was caused by packer hogs coming to the packing plants at lighter weights. This may mean that packers are having trouble finding hogs so they are pulling their hogs forward or it may mean that they are killing their hogs while the price is high and that lower bids are on the way.

Best wishes,
