Hog futures went into the Memorial Day weekend with a 70 cent loss in June and a 10 cent loss in July, to 25 to 47 cent gains in the deferred months. USDA’s National Average Base Hog price for Friday afternoon was $1.67 weaker to $109.68. CME’s 5/25 Lean Hog Index was 53 cents higher to $104.40. 

The weekly Commitment of Traders report showed lean hog spec traders grew their net long 4,318 contracts wk/wk to 14,881. That came mostly via the short sellers taking profits through the week, but is still the group’s second (to last week) weakest net long since August of 2020.
