EU Pig Grand Prix
The EU PiG Grand Prix has officially launched its competition to gather and share innovative best practice from pig producers and processors across 13 member states in Europe.
We are looking for innovative and forward-thinking producers who have a unique approach to producing or processing pigs or those who have created a way of working, or implemented an idea (big or small) that is driving efficiencies in their business.
In return for sharing their idea, they will receive one-to-one support from some of the leading minds in pig production and a chance to be featured at PIGS2022 conference on 7 June 2017.
AHDB need 24 best practice examples, from the UK, that address any of the following eight challenges: biosecurity and reduction of antimicrobial medication; reduction of boar taint and innovation in short food supply chain; castration methods and tail docking; smart water usage and feeding/management.
To enter, access the application form below and submit a short abstract describing the idea, then submit along with a photo to Dr Charlotte Evans, care of Sue Wickam at the AHDB Stoneleigh address or via EUPiG@ahdb.org.uk by the end of March.
(Entries received after the end of March won’t be included in the EU PiG Grand Prix but will still be considered for the PIGS2022 conference in June)
