Tuesday, December 28th, 2021 -- 11:00 AM


(Wisconsin Ag Connection) Wisconsin's hog and pig inventory totaled 370,000 head on December 1, down seven percent from the same time last year.

According to the Wisconsin Ag Connection, the USDA says breeding hog inventory in the Badger State was counted at 52,000 head, which was about 6,000 less than in late 2020. Market hog numbers totaled 318,000 head, much lower than the 342,000 a year earlier.

The agency says Wisconsin's annual pig crop between December 2020 through November 2021 was 1.06 million head, down 12 percent for the year. Pigs per litter averaged 11.39, which was down fractionally from last year's all-time record.

U.S. inventory of all hogs and pigs on December 1 was 74.2 million head. This was down four percent from 2020. Breeding inventory, at 6.18 million head, was up slightly higher from last year. Market hog inventory was at 68 million head, which was also off by four percent from last December.
