Please Note: 
The below 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.
