This report is one in a series on the economic
analysis of alternative swine production systems. The
other reports of this series evaluate confinement
farrow-to-finish production systems, confinement
feeder pig production systems, and a one and twolitter
farrow-to-finish pasture system. This series of
reports has been prepared under Minnesota Experiment
Station Project MIN 14-025: "An Economic
Analysis of Swine Production Systems in Minnesota."
This publication describes and evaluates three confinement
hog finishing systems by calculating annual
enterprise budgets and monthly cash flows for each
system and then comparing the results. In addition to
estimating the profitability and monthly capital requirements
for each system, the financial computations
are used to evaluate rental payments for hog finishing facilities. 35 pages
