dc.description.abstract Approximately 35 swine operations are enrolled in the 1992 Kansas Swine Enterprise Record Program. This program evaluates physical and economic performance and is part of a cooperative record-keeping project with extension personnel and swine producers in Kansas, Nebraska, and South Dakota. Records are summarized every 6 months, and the corresponding data are pooled to form state and regional averages. This paper summarizes the data for 22 farrow-to-finish operations in Kansas that kept records during the first 6 months of 1992. Profit per cwt. of pork produced for these 22 producers averaged $1.13. Profits varied substantially between producers. Producers in the top one-third in terms of profitability had average profits of $8.25 per cwt., whereas producers in the bottom one-third had average losses of $7.02 per cwt. Critical factors separating low and high profit producers included feed costs, unpaid labor, fixed costs, and productivity. en_US
