UK - What do a journalist, a vet and a consultant all have in common? They are all previous winners of the prestigious David Black Award.

The time has now come to start nominating people for this year’s award, people who have made an outstanding and sustained contribution to the pig industry.

The winner will be chosen by a panel of independent judges chaired by BPEX Director Mick Sloyan.

Mr Sloyan said: “The volatility of the cereal market has plunged the industry into the red but there are many people who are working tirelessly to help.

“A large number have made a significant contribution over the years and they all deserve recognition.

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

The award will be presented at an industry breakfast being held in the House of Lords in the autumn.

Nominations can be made via the BPEX web site, or by contacting Sonia Bryson.
