Thursday saw plenty of economic data concerning the US economy. Thursday though was also the release date for the quarterly hogs and pigs report from USDA. Overall the report showed that the US hog inventory declined about 1% from where it was a year ago. Overall that is not a substantial number.

Darrell Holaday with Country Futures shares his thoughts on the report here:

Here’s how the USDA data played out;

United States inventory of all hogs and pigs on September 1, 2022 was 73.8 million head. This was down 1 percent from September 1, 2021, but up 2 percent from June 1, 2022.


Breeding inventory, at 6.15 million head, was down 1 percent from last year, and down slightly from the previous quarter.
Market hog inventory, at 67.6 million head, was down 1 percent from last year, but up 2 percent from last quarter.

The June-August 2022 pig crop, at 33.6 million head, was down 1 percent from 2021. Sows farrowing during this period totaled 3.02 million head, down 1 percent from 2021. 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, unchanged from last year.
