UK - An Inconvenient Trough, a new documentary series looking at the crisis in pig farming, was launched yesterday at the David Black Award ceremony at the House of Lords.

The short series, produced by a group of pig farmers from across the country, looks at the struggle the whole pig industry has faced over the past year due to rocketing feed prices.

An Inconvenient Trough focuses on pig farmers’ fight for fairer prices and their battle to save Britain’s pig industry.

An Inconvenient Trough shows farmers talking about their campaign for fair prices and their hopes for a recovery. Part one, launched today, focuses on the supply chain from farm to supermarkets and butchers. Part two, which looks at the food service sector and part three, which covers public sector purchasing of pork and pork products will be released on www.pigsareworthit.com next month.

The series includes contributions from nine pig farmers from across the country, plus Richard Bacon MP, Lord Hoyle of Warrington, and TV Chef, Phil Vickery, all long time supporters of the pig industry.
