These prices include freight and fees on a farm to farm basis.  Most lots of

40-60 weight pigs have a sliding value from the negotiated weight basis which is calculated on the actual average weight of the load plus or minus .25-.40 per pound.  Some early weaned lots have a slide of .50-1.00 per pound.  Early weaned pigs are under 21 days old.  Estimated lean value is projected to use slaughter weights with normal confinement feeding conditions.  Vaccination and health program values are not included but health status should be disclosed.
