UK - The British National Pig Association is to conduct a survey of pig producers to discover how much cover they have taken out to protect themselves from rising in-put costs.

The survey is part of the drive by the NPA, the British Pig Executive and the joint Pigs Are Worth It Campaign to make retailers and processors aware of the rising costs faced by producers.

"To this end a snapshot is needed of how much cover pig producers have taken on feed costs," the NPA says.

"The indications to date are that few producers are prepared to lock into loss-making costs."

The confidential survey is expected to be published on the NPA website today.
