The pig industry has seen some very challenging times and through the difficulties many people have worked doggedly, giving their all for the benefit of the industry.

One of those people, who has made a valuable and sustained contribution to the industry, is in line to be the recipient of the award.

Everybody in the pig industry is eligible to win, no matter which sector they are from.

Previous winners have included consultants, allied industry, processors, producers and even the Pig Health Control Association. The final selection will be made by a panel of independent judges chaired by BPEX Director, Mick Sloyan.

Mr Sloyan said: "Many people have made a significant contribution over the years and all deserve recognition.

"In the past, winners have been people who thought there were others better qualified than they to receive it, though their peers knew better.

"There are still many out there who richly deserve this award and we want their names to be put forward for consideration by the judges."
