Animals kept for breeding as of June 1 are expected to decline about 3.5 percent from 5.968 million head a year earlier, based on a survey of analysts conducted by Dow Jones Newswires before the USDA’s Quarterly Hogs and Pigs Report.

The projected decline would leave the breeding herd, an indicator of future pork supplies, at 5.759 million head, the lowest since at least 1963, which is the farthest back the USDA tracks the data.
