USDA Says SD's Hog Inventory Up One Percent

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says South Dakota's inventory of all hogs and pigs on Dec. 1 is up one percent from the same time last year.

The South Dakota office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service says the count of 1.21 million head is up five percent from Sept. 1.

Breeding hog inventory of 165,000 head is unchanged from last year but down three percent from last quarter. Market hog inventory of 1.05 million head is up one percent from last year, and up seven percent from last quarter.

The September-November 2013 South Dakota pig crop of 914,000 head is down two percent from 2012. Sows farrowed during the period totaled 85,000 head, down six percent from last year.

The average pigs saved per litter was 10.75 for September-November.
