Pigs fly: Profit and revenue return to healthy levels as downstream demand remains high



Abstract

Hog & Pig Farming in the US

Over the past five years, the Hog and Pig Farming industry has worked itself out of a dirty corner. The industry grew strongly as demand for pork products resurged, evidenced by double-digit growth in processed meat exports and higher prices for farmers. But revenue will decline in the five years to 2021 alongside the price of red meat.

Establishments in this industry farm hogs and pigs in operations that include breeding, farrowing, weaning and raising feeder pigs or market-size hogs. The term pig usually refers to the domestic mammal when it is young or small, while hog is the name typically given to domesticated pigs that weigh more than 120 pounds. While hog feedlots are included in the industry, the transportation of the livestock is excluded.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
