Behavior of hog futures prices around USDA hog and pig reports is examined. Price patterns indicate evidence of inefficient markets, but such inefficiency is attributed to inadequate information. Results support the need for more frequent hog and pig reports and/or reporting of breakdown into barrow and gilt slaughter.
