The Agriculture Department said the number of hogs is down in North Dakota.
The North Dakota Agricultural Statistics Service said the state had 151,000 hogs as of Dec. 1, down 31,000 from the previous year.
The record number of hogs was set in 1943 at 1.1 million, the agency said.
A proposed 7,500-hog business near Wolford, in Pierce County, has preliminary approval from the state Health Department.
“We’ve made our decision with minor changes and if they get county approval, then they can go ahead,” said Karl Rockmann, the Health Department’s water quality specialist.
The county’s planning and zoning commission voted 4-2 Tuesday to recommend a permit. The Pierce County Commission is scheduled to discuss it Feb. 5, in Rugby.
Hog farmers in the Upper Midwest and Canada’s prairie provinces plan to buy majority interest in a North Dakota slaughter plant, in what one official calls a historic moment for the region’s pork industry.
