AgCensus: wild boars

I have a question from a faculty member who’s researching wild boar production. In 2011, the census of Agriculture asked specifically about this (question 160), but in 2016 wild boar are lumped into the “other livestock” category (question 162), with respondents having the option to specify which type of critters they’re raising. Is there a way to extract wild boar production figures for 2016?

Unfortunately for 2016, wild boars are reported under the “other” livestock write-in cell of the questionnaire. The components of “other” cannot be released individually at this point in time due to quality concerns.
