According to the Australian Bureau of Agriculture and Resource Economics, Australia's pig industry is valued at over AUD$1 billion, while the pork supply chain has a value of around AUD$3.5 billion. The most popular pig breerds used in Australian pork production are the Large White, Landrace, and Duroc and, on average, a sow (a female pig) will produce 10-12 piglets per litter. The pig industry is therefore extremely important for the Australian economy.
This FACT indicates the number of pigs used for breeding as a percentage of the total number of pigs in each Australian state and territory. No data was found for the ACT, Tasmania, or Western Australia.
