 This pie chart illustrates a breakdown of the cost structure of producing a litter of weaned pigs. The area of each segment is proportional to its value, such that the sum of all values is 100%. In this example, "feed-related expenses" account for 34.4% of the estimated total cost of production of $227.83 per litter. Before you turn to inside the back cover, take a few moments to write down a list of Þnancial accounting categories that are important contributors to weaned pig production.
