USDA to Conduct June Quarterly Hogs and Pigs Survey

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is reaching out to producers for the June Hogs and Pigs Survey. Conducted quarterly, this survey collects comprehensive data on market hog and breeding stock inventories, pig crop, and farrowing intentions in the U.S.

“The March Quarterly Hogs and Pigs report indicated that Missouri had a total hog population of 3.25 million, a 3% decrease from 2023,” noted Brad Summa, director of the NASS Heartland Regional Field Office. “I urge all surveyed producers to respond to the June survey to ensure an accurate count of Missouri’s hog inventory.”

Data from the survey helps NASS accurately assess and report conditions and trends in the U.S. pork industry over the past three months. This information is crucial for all industry sectors, including producers, to make informed and timely business decisions.

NASS will send questionnaires to selected hog producers in May. Producers are encouraged to respond online at or by mail. For those who do not respond, NASS representatives will follow up to arrange telephone interviews.

NASS ensures the privacy of all respondents, publishing only aggregate data and protecting individual operations and producers’ identities as mandated by federal law. The survey results will be published in the Quarterly Hogs and Pigs report on June 27, accessible online at
