Please Note:
 The USDA LPGMN price report is reflective of the majority of classes and grades of 
livestock offered for sale.  There may be instances where some sales do not fit 
within reporting guidelines and therefore will not be included in the report. 
Prices are reported on a per cwt basis, unless otherwise noted.
