Lean Hogs Futures Contract

Lean Hogs futures allow investors the opportunity to profit from or hedge against the price movements of this meat. Hogs give birth to large litters and can grow to a slaughter weight of 250 pounds in a mere six months. A slaughtered hog yields approximately 90 pounds of lean pork. Pork production is fairly dispersed, though the U.S. is the leading producer with most of its production centered in North Carolina, Minnesota and Illinois.
