USDA to Conduct Hogs and Pigs Survey
Missouri Ag Connection - 05/20/2020

In late May, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will begin surveying famers in Missouri and across the U.S. to estimate hog and pig inventory. The survey will be used to determine inventories as of June 1, the size of the pig crop over the last three months, and future farrowing intentions.

"The survey will be mailed to farmers near the end of May. Farmers may return the survey by mail or online," said Bob Garino, Missouri state statistician.

The USDA encourages farmers to respond online at the website www.agcounts.usda.gov, as it is secure, efficient and saves costs.

"This quarterly survey provides valuable information about pork production to farmers and the rural communities," added Garino.

Farmers may be contacted by phone during June if they have not returned their survey by mail or online.

"This survey has documented the large increase in Missouri hog inventories since 2014," Garino explained.

NASS safeguards the privacy of all respondents and publishes only aggregate data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified, as required by federal law. Results will be published in the Hogs and Pigs Report, to be released June 25. For more information call the NASS Heartland Regional Field Office at 800-551-1014.
