The AHDB Pork British Pig Health Scheme (BPHS) is an industry-sponsored health monitoring scheme established in 2008.
AHDB Pork continually encourages retailers to source Quality Standard pork and pork products. The results are monitored in-store through a bi-monthly PorkWatch survey conducted by representatives of the National Pig Association (NPA).
The Canadian hog industry remained stable over the year to July 2015, with the total number of pigs increasing by a small margin of 1% to 13.2 million, according to figures from Statistics Canada.
The number of pigs slaughtered across the EU in the first half of this year was up nearly 5 million head (4%) on a year before, based on latest figures from Eurostat.
The basic principles of field drainage, as well as maintenance and installation information, are the subject of a new practical guide issued by AHDB.
