The CME Lean Hog Index component on the kill for -

3/29/19 was up 1.63 to 76.48. The JJJs settled premium to the component by 0.92.

The -day moving average carcass weight firmed to 215.6#. That is +0.27# yr/yr. Packer hogs are +4.45# heavier than the non-packer hogs.

The USDA was late getting the reports out due to packer submission problems.

Best wishes,
