United States Hog Inventory Down 4 Percent

United States inventory of all hogs and pigs on September 1, 2021 was
75.4 million head. This was down 4 percent from
September 1, 2020, but up 1 percent from June 1, 2021.

Breeding inventory, at 6.19 million head, was down 2 percent from last year,
and down slightly from the previous quarter.

Market hog inventory, at 69.2 million head, was down 4 percent from last
year, but up 1 percent from last quarter.

The June-August 2021 pig crop, at 33.9 million head, was down 6 percent from
2020. Sows farrowing during this period totaled 3.05 million head, down
7 percent from 2020. The sows farrowed during this quarter represented 49
percent of the breeding herd. The average pigs saved per litter was 11.13 for
the June-August period, compared to 11.06 last year.

United States hog producers intend to have 3.00 million sows farrow during
the September-November 2021 quarter, down 4 percent from the actual
farrowings during the same period one year earlier, and down 6 percent from
the same period two years earlier. Intended farrowings for December 2021-
February 2022, at 2.96 million sows, are up 1 percent from the same period
one year earlier, but down 3 percent from the same period two years earlier.

The total number of hogs under contract owned by operations with over 5,000
head, but raised by contractees, accounted for 49 percent of the total United
States hog inventory, up 2 percent from the previous year.

Revisions

All inventory and pig crop estimates for September 2020 through June 2021
were reviewed using final pig crop, official slaughter, death loss, and
updated import and export data. The revision made to the June 2021 all hogs
and pigs inventory was 1.7 percent. The net revision made to the March 2021
all hogs and pigs inventory was 1.3 percent. A net revision of 3.9 percent
was made to the December 2020-February 2021 pig crop. The net revision made
to the December 2020 all hogs and pigs inventory was 0.9 percent. A net
revision of 1.0 percent was made to the September 2020-November 2020 pig
crop.
