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.
