Another 145 bidders in the federally-funded hog farm transition program (HFTP) will share $25.23 million to fold up their hog operations for at least three years.

That leaves about $14 million in program funding for the HFTP's fourth and final tender, scheduled for March 10, the Canadian Pork Council announced Monday.

Of the successful bids, the lowest accepted was $584 per animal unit equivalent (AUE); the highest was $999.86 per AUE; the weighted average bid for the tender was $925.42.
The successful bidders are now committed to remove 38,572 sows and 76,585 weaners (<30 kg) plus another 149,735 hogs ranging from 31 kg to market weight.
