Description

Although there has been substantial consolidation in pork production, supply variability still affects prices. Farrowing intentions are a primary indicator of U.S. swine supplies. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) summarizes producers’ farrowing intentions and actual farrowings in Quarterly Hogs and Pigs reports.
