Pork Costings and Herd Performance
This section contains latest physical performance data for the GB pig herd, covering both indoor and outdoor breeding herds and the feeding herd. A range of performance indicators are provided for each category.
This section also provides estimates of the cost of pig production in GB.
International comparisons of production costs and physical performance can be found in the annual 'Cost of Production in Selected Countries' InterPIG reports. The most recent report can be accessed in the Cost of Production in Selected Countries section. Reports from previous years can be accessed in the Published Reports section.
Pig performance trends provide the main KPI trends over years.
COP sensitivity tables show how the COP changes for movements in feed costs and pig performance (pigs weaned per sow per year; FCR and DLWG)

Pork cost of production in selected countries
InterPIG, an international group of economists, gathers together physical and financial data to a standard methodology so that the cost of pig production can be compared across a selected group of countries.
