Hog producers from across the country are submitting bids for the Federal Hog Transition program.

Producers are submitting tenders indicating how much money they would require to exit the industry for three years.

They'll start with the lowest bid and move up until 10 million dollars has been accounted for.


Bison markets have enjoyed a less than stellar week.

Despite a lower Canadian dollar, markets remained under pressure, with A-1 bulls dropping by about 10 cents a pound.
