Description:
Most market ready hogs in Ontario are sold through contracts, and some by auction, all brokered through the Ontario Pork Producers Marketing Board. The market is not supply-managed which means that prices fluctuate according to the normal market forces of supply and demand. A levy is collected by Ontario Pork from each hog sold to fund them to provide services to pork producers such as industry representation, marketing, research and promotions.
