ABSTRACT
The article discusses the probability that pig producers will face bankruptcy unless pork buyers increase their prices to sustain input costs. It cites that London wheat futures reached highs for March 2011, which affects feed costs. It notes that Abbots Farms owners Corinne and Roger Eves experienced decreased sales in gilts in December 2010 and January 2011. It offers a risk management training program by Offre et Demand Agricole UK (ODA) for pig farmers struggling with wheat prices.
