Short Weeks

Because of the reduced number of kill days over short weeks, it is essential that producers be accurate on the number of animals being offered and delivered under contract. Unless otherwise stated in contract or in writing by receiving booking staff, producers are obligated to ensure that contract delivery requirements are met.

Producers are encouraged to contact their regular booking staff to discuss INCREASING their hog shipments the weeks prior to and after a short week. This will help REDUCE hog volumes on a short week to accommodate for reduced slaughter capacity.

Christmas & New Year

During this period of reduced processing it is extremely important that producers DO NOT load hogs off the farm until the sale and delivery of the animals has been confirmed by the receiving booking staff.
