FARGO, North Dakota , December 28, 2011 () – The Agriculture Department says the number of hogs in North Dakota has rebounded from the lowest level since 1899.

The North Dakota Agricultural Statistics Service says the state had 151,000 hogs as of Dec. 1. That's up 8,000 from last year, which say lowest number of hogs in more than a century.

The agency says the increase this year is due to additional breeding and market inventory hogs.

North Dakota had 120,000 hogs in 1899. The record number of hogs was set in 1943 at 1.1 million.
