The National Pig Herd Performance Report 2022, produced by the PDD, is the detailed analysis of the performance of the pig farms that participated in the Teagasc Profit Monitor (PM) recording system in 2022. 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 Teagasc PDD always welcome more herds to participate in benchmarking using the PM. Any new herds that wish to participate should contact their Specialised Pig Advisor.

On the latest episode of The Pig Edge, Host, Amy Quinn, is joined by Gerard McCutcheon, to discuss the report and interpret its results
