Small-Scale Producers

Home \ Pig Production \ Small-Scale Producers

The industry is made up of a huge variety of production systems with herds ranging from just a handful of sows to thousands. Each of these businesses has an important part to play in the overall success of the industry, whether it’s commercial lines or rare breeds it is important to know that the support and information is out there.


Pig Clubs

Our next round of meetings, aimed specifically at small-scale producers, will be taking place during August and September 2018. 

Specialist pig vet, Adrian Cox, will be talking about farrowing management, addressing topics such as the timing of farrowing, signs and difficulties.

The meetings are free to attend and will be interactive, so please come along with questions.

A meal will also be provided.
