USDA to Conduct Quarterly Hogs and Pigs Survey
USAgNet - 02/12/2019
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is contacting producers for the March Hogs and Pigs Survey. This survey is a comprehensive gathering of quarterly data on market hog and breeding stock inventories as well
as pig crop and farrowing intentions in every state.
NASS will mail the questionnaires to all producers selected for the survey in mid-February. To ensure all survey participants have an opportunity to respond, NASS interviewers will contact producers who do not respond by mail or online to conduct telephone
and personal interviews.
The data gathered in this survey allow NASS to accurately measure and report conditions and trends in the U.S. pork industry. The information is used by all sectors of the industry, including producers themselves, to help make sound and timely business
decisions. NASS will publish the survey results in the Quarterly Hogs and Pigs Report.
