UK - BPEX will launch its biggest project yet at the British Pig and Poultry Fair next week – Hall 2 Stand 48.

The Two Tonne Sow (2TS) project aims to help the English pig industry achieve an average of 2,000kg of pig meat per sow per year.

Despite improvements in physical performance in recent years, there remains a significant productivity gap between the English pig industry and its major European competitors.

The workshops include one on anaerobic digestion (AD) which offers the chance to learn about the range of technologies and opportunities available and hear first-hand from a pig producer who has designed and planned an anaerobic digester enterprise involving his pig business and a local poultry business.

BPEX Environment Programme Manager, Nigel Penlington, and producer, James Hart, will help answer the many practical and financial questions about AD and identify the potential options for farm-scale projects.

BPEX marketing will have a wide range of information on the totally integrated marketing campaign – Love Summer Love Pork, which includes:

  • Food-service Summer Activity – Score with Pork
  • Girls' Guide to Grilling – BBQ Activity
  • Campaign to rename Picnics 'Pignics'

A plasma screen will have live demonstrations of the Lovepork and BPEX web sites showcasing:

  • the range of pork cuts information and variety of recipes on the Lovepork site
  • along with the in-depth and industry wide information available from the BPEX site

BPEX invites you to come along and say hello – and come armed with questions as there will be BPEX staff from all sections ready to help with information and advice.
