Monday 5 March 2018 (1 months 18 days ago)

The total number of pigs in England has in creased by 2.8 % since December 2016 to 3.7 million. The main driver for this overall increase was fattening pigs which rose by 3.2 % to 3.3 million and accounts for 89% of the total pig population.

The female pig breeding herd saw a small increase of 0.4% from 324 thousand pigs in December 2016 to 325 thousand in December 2017. Other breeding pigs decreased by 2.4% since December 2016 to 82 thousand. This is similar to estimates seen in June 2017 and was largely due to a decrease in the number of boars which reduced by 2 thousand between December 2016 and December 2017. This decrease was also seen in June 2017.
