Pig Herd Performance 2022 Infographic

The data available and included in this analysis is from a total of 76 herds representing over 56,500 sows or 43% of the total Irish sow herd. The average herd size included in this database is 744 sows and ranged from less than 100 sows to over 2,500 sows.
The performance parameters in this report are the weighted average (weighted by the herd size) of the participating herds. This weighting is done to make allowance for the large range in herd size of the participating herds.
Herds participating in the PM recording system and engaging with the advisory support of the staff of the Teagasc Pig Development Department continue to demonstrate improvements in technical performance each year.
