Pork production and marketing has been driven by growing consumer demand for low-cost, high-quality animal protein. As a result, the industrial and organized pig house has grown rapidly on a global scale. The study was based on data from generated using the search terms “pig production systems,” “pork processing”, and “management” for the period from 1961 to 2022. A total of 1,13,674 documents were identified as relevant and retrieved in CSV format. The intellectual structure of the retrieved data was visualized and analyzed using VoS viewer software (version 1.6.19). The analysis showed that the field of Agricultural, veterinary and food sciences had the highest number of publications on pig production, processing, and management, followed by the biological sciences. Most of the articles (267) were about Sustainable Development Goal 3, which focuses on ensuring access to good health and well-being. The co-authors' analysis for countries indicates that China has the most impact and research, and all other countries have established clusters around it. Analysis of institution citations revealed that Aarhus University, Ghent University, and Iowa State University were the top three institutions in terms of total citations (1329, 922, and 887 respectively), showing the highest performance. Analysis of citations for sources indicates that the journal "Animals" has a greater impact on readers when it comes to research involving pigs. By understanding the most active research areas and influential researchers, policymakers, industry professionals and researchers can better prioritize resources and collaborate to drive progress in the important areas of pig husbandry.
