Ted has extensive pig management experience and has joined after managing a 2,500 farrowing to early weaning operation in Canada.

British cattle breeders who attended the Agribex 2004 Show in Brussels made new international contacts from as far away as Mexico.

Henry Lewis, MLC Livestock Export Manager who also represented the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX), said he encountered a keen interest in British genetics and, when trade is re-opened, in breeding stock.

More than 300 delegates attended the Caterer and Hotelkeeper Chef Conference sponsored by the British Pig Executive. Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing, who gave a masterclass at the event in London, praised the versatility of pork, particularly pork belly saying the taste was amazing.

BPEX Chairman Stewart Houston said: "It was wonderful to see so much enthusiasm and passion for pork, particularly when the chefs had carefully sourced their ingredients from local suppliers."
