LINCOLN, Neb. May 19, 2021 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics
Service (NASS) is contacting producers for the June Hogs and Pigs Survey. The agency will survey
pork producers for detailed information on market hog and breeding stock inventories as well as pig
crop and farrowing intentions in every state.
“With the data gathered in the quarterly Hogs and Pigs surveys, NASS measures and reports trends in
the U.S. pork industry over the course of the year,” said Nicholas Streff, Director of the NASS Northern
Plains Regional Office.
The information is used by all sectors of the industry to help make sound and timely business decisions.
NASS will mail the questionnaires to all producers selected for the survey in late May. 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 interviews.
NASS will publish the survey results in the quarterly Hogs and Pigs report on June 24. All NASS
reports are available online at www.nass.usda.gov/Publications/. For more information, call the NASS
Northern Plains Regional Office at (800) 582-6443.
