The farmers will produce terminal-sire boars for sale in both the UK and ACMC's rapidly-developing overseas markets, for which they will be paid premiums.

"The project could suit existing pig farmers, or arable and livestock farmers who are looking for an alternative enterprise to diversify their businesses," commented Matthew Curtis, ACMC's managing director.

"The units could be in England, Scotland or Wales and have suitable buildings for 150+ sow herd with straw-based production, but an important feature is isolation to preserve the nucleus unit's high-health status," he added.
