WHE: Holidays

Short Weeks

Because of the reduced number of kill days over short weeks, it is especially essential that producers be accurate on the number of animals being offered and delivered to under contract. Contracted hogs will be given first priority.

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 staff.

Unscheduled deliveries will not be accepted under any circumstances!

Your assistance and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
