Summer sausage

The last few times I have made summer sausage, the sausages experienced shrinkage. I use Legg's summer sausage seasoning, do 25 lbs per batch, and used 2.5"x20" casings. I followed directions on the package. The first few times I made summer sausage, I mixed the spices and additives myself. I wonder if Legg's needs more soy protein in it to aleviate shrinkage. Also, I forgot to poke holes in the casings with a corn-cob holder these last couple times and ended up with fat channeling in the areas lost to shrinkage.
