NETHERLANDS - On 30 November and 1 December 2011, an international conference will take place to end surgical castration of pigs in Europe.

The conference is organised to investigate current practices, exchange information and to identify solutions for the various European countries. The final goal is an end to surgical castration in Europe in 2018.

This conference is a follow-up of the successful international meeting in 2007 in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. 'Boars heading for 2018' is organised to discuss challenges and chances, in the marketing of the meat of non-castrated male pigs.

The conference is organised by Wageningen University and Research centre in close co-operation with the organising committee, consisting of organisations and companies in the Dutch pork production chain.
