UK - AHDB Pork is holding a series of free events this autumn, aimed squarely at stockmen and farm managers.

The meetings are at six venues with four different programmes and only last half a day, finishing with hot refreshments.

The aim of the whole series is to help achieve a profitable pig and there are topics for both indoor and outdoor producers covering regional concerns relating to land and health management.

The event is being organised by AHDB Pork technical co-ordinator Miriam Drewett who said: “The meetings cover a range of topics and will offer both stockmen and manager take-home messages they can implement immediately on the unit.
