Swine Contract Library Information

The Packers and Stockyards Division (PSD) of the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) has implemented the Swine Contract Library (SLC) as mandated by the 106th Congress. The amended Packers and Stockyards Act (pdf) requires the Secretary of Agriculture to establish and maintain a library or catalog of the types of contracts offered by packers to swine producers for the purchase of swine (including swine that are purchased for future delivery). The Swine Contract Library is intended to aid in the price discovery process and provide equal access to market information for all market participants.
