I am not current with the prices but experienced enough to know that 66 baht should be above the cost of production and therefore represent a profit. If you have pigs to sell, and the price offered is higher than cost, then sell now. Holding market pigs past 100Kg makes little sense.

The only thing I can add is a conversation I had with a friend. He said there appears to be a shortage of piglets which usually means prices will stay higher.

I think it's funny when farangs without farming/animals background start with something like that in Thailand.

How do you think you can be possibly competitive to Thais who do this since forever?

And when do you think you make a profit? If you can sell the pigs for more than the cost of the food?

Or do you calculate also all the time you spend with this business? Do you make more than 100B per hour?

You can make money but it hard work with all the fluctuating prices

Locally live weight price is 65 baht. A little further away the price is above 75 baht. Seems about right then. Piglets going for 1600 baht.
