    Economic Simulation model (SIMETAR) was used to investigate the effect of future corn price on profitability of control and phytase enhanced diet of hogs. The completed simulation model was used to estimate probability distribution for control vs lower excretion diet profitability under different corn prices. Data used was collected from recent field trials in Oklahoma that tested the effect of phytase enhanced diets on reducing phosphorus emission. The results showed that as the market price of corn increases control diet will be more profitable than phytase enhanced diet, given the cost of other remaining feed ingredient is constant for both the diets.
