Sat, 26 Dec 2020 15:45:22 CST

Oklahoma Continues to Have the Fifth Largest Breeding Hog Herd in the US in Latest Hogs and Pigs Report As of December 1, U.S. farms contained 77.5 million hogs and pigs, down one percent from December of 2019, and down one percent from September of 2020. Those numbers were published just ahead of Christmas by the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Of the 77.5 million hogs and pigs, 71.2 million were market hogs, while 6.28 million were kept for breeding.

Between September and November of this year, 35 million pigs were weaned on U.S. Farms, down one percent from the same period last year, while U.S. hog producers weaned an average of 11.05 pigs per litter.

Hog producers intend to have 3.12 million sows farrow between December of 2020 and February 2021, and 3.12 million sows farrow between March and May of next year.

Iowa producers held the largest inventory among the states at 24.8 million head. Minnesota was next with 9.4 million head, and North Carolina finished third with nine million head. Oklahoma hog numbers dropped eight percent from a year ago, while sow numbers in the state gained three percent from December 2019. The Oklahoma breeding herd of 465,000 sows ranks Oklahoma as the fifth largest sow state in the US- behind Iowa, North Carolina, Illinois and Minnesota. The total hog numbers in Oklahoma are just over two million head- the nineth largest hog state in terms of total numbers.
