North Dakota sees growth in hog numbers
 

 

The North Dakota Agricultural Statistics Service says that as of December 1, the state had 151,000 hogs, up 8,000 from last year, a rebound from the lowest level since 1899.

 

The agency says the increase this year is due to additional breeding and market inventory hogs.

 

North Dakota had 120,000 hogs in 1899. The record number of hogs was set in 1943 at 1.1 million.
