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 last round of meetings, aimed specifically at small-scale producers, took place in February and March 2019.

At our next round of meetings, this October, we’ll be focusing on disease surveillance and hearing from Veterinary Investigation Officers from the Animal and Plant Health Authority (APHA). The presentations should be interesting, so hopefully you can make one of the meetings.
