Between 2000 and 2010, the swine livestock in Brittany has fallen by almost 4%, and one out of four farms has disappeared, whilst the farms have increased their size and have become specialized. The mean size of the farms has gone from 1,130 pigs in 2000 to 1,420 pigs in 2010.

In 2010 the farrow-to-finish farms represented 80% of the swine livestock in this region, that has the highest pig production in France. The swine census rose to 7.8 million pigs: 4.8 millionn fattening pigs and 607,000 sows.
