Recognition for professional pig producers

Giving recognition for pig producers’ professionalism has just become easier and membership fees are lower. The Pig Industry Professional Register (PIPR) is a very useful tool to help the pig industry demonstrate its high standards and professionalism to assurance bodies, government and the public.

It keeps a record of all registered events and training members have been to and members now have direct access to their records online.

PIPR membership simply involves:
  • Registering to open a PIPR member’s account
  • Members signing their name on the PIPR form provided when they go to events and training courses
Points are then automatically added to each member’s PIPR account so they continue to build up points throughout their pig industry career. It could be described as building up ‘professional capital’.
Members can access and print off a statement of their points balance and how they earned them, to show their credentials to colleagues, current and possible future employers.
The PIPR scheme was developed by BPEX and City & Guilds NPTC, in collaboration with pig producers, as a simple way to give recognition for producers’ commitment to improving their knowledge and skills.

Anybody working in the pig industry can be a member, including vets and allied industry. For more details go to:
