UK - Nearly half the English pig herd will soon be vaccinating against PCV2, which should create an increase in production of between a half and one pig per sow per year.

This would mean 180,000 to 360,000 more slaughter pigs a year, or about an extra two weeks' supply of fresh British pork.

So far there have been 274 applications for BPEX-subsidised PCV2 vouchers, representing 177,631 sows.
