View the assessment dates for participating abattoirs, which began in March 2019. 

The Pig Health Scheme is a development of the former British Pig Health Scheme (BPHS). The assessors on the scheme monitor English pigs at slaughter for prevalence and severity of 12 conditions. Assessments are carried out by specially trained veterinary assessors at eleven designated abattoirs throughout England.

Don’t get left in the dark. Tackle hidden costs caused by disease that would otherwise remain unseen and join 300 other businesses that are receiving valuable data for their herds.

Membership

Membership of the scheme is free to all producers – reports will be automatically sent to you two days after each assessment. Signing up is quick and easy can be done through your Pig Hub account today. 

If you were a member of the previous BPHS, you have been automatically enrolled to the relaunched Pig Health Scheme. 

The Pig Health Scheme report can be used to:

  • Provide a baseline of the current health status of your herd
  • Benchmark against other members of the scheme using aggregated and anonymised data 
  • Monitor the effects of management changes on the health of pigs, such as feed or a vaccination programme change
  • Inform decisions around disease control with your vet

A guide is available that provides a brief description of the conditions assessed, the scoring system and an explanation of the reports that members will receive.

You can view the guide here. If you would prefer a printed copy, email comms@ahdb.org.uk to request one.
