Economies of size are large enough that in a year of low returns, some small enterprises may fail to cover cash costs, while larg9 enterprises cover all costs, including . The increasing size and specialization of hog operations reflect structural change in U.S. swine production during the past 15 years.

Abstract. U.S. hog farms declined in number by more than 70 percent over the past two decades while hog inventories remained stable.
