The number of pigs in Malta dropped by 34.4 per cent in 2011 over 2010, the National Statistics Office said.

The NSO said that in December 2011, the pig population amounted to 46,287 heads, down by 34.4 per cent, or 24,296 over 2010. A decline of 26.9 per cent was recorded in the breeding stock, which ultimately contributed to a 36.4 per cent drop in fattening pigs.

The census revealed that 116 holdings (-11.5 per cent) were engaged in pig production. Of these, 72.4 per cent had less than 400 pigs and accounted for 31.8 per cent of total stock, or 14,730 heads.
