Have Your Say at AHDB Pork Pig Meetings

10 May 2016, at 6:00am

UK - A new series of regional forums is being organised for pig producers by AHDB Pork and this time they are all open meetings.

All pig producers and members of the allied industry are encouraged to attend as the forums are a means of listening to the wider industry.

They enable attendees to provide more direct input into proposed technical activity and feedback on the quality and relevance of AHDB Pork work.

The main objectives are:

  • To discuss how best to go about improving key performance indicators for closing the physical pig performance gap in the region
  • To get feedback on AHDB Pork knowledge transfer activity and collect new ideas
  • To achieve better coordination within the regions and work more effectively with other businesses to avoid duplication.

AHDB Pork knowledge exchange lead Steve Winfield said: “These meetings give everybody a chance to have some input into the work of the organisation.

“Everybody is welcome to attend and we are interested in all shades of opinion – nobody has a monopoly on good ideas!”

The forums are on:

- 18 May, at the Solstice Park Holiday Inn, near Stonehenge starting at 4:00pm, contact KE Manager Ben Golledge, on 07583 170 941

- 24 May at the Bridge Hotel, Walshford, Wetherby, at 4:00pm, contact KE Manager Richard Bows on 07816 941 223

- 14 June, at Denny Bros, Bury St Edmunds, starting at 2:00pm, contact KE Manager Andrew Palmer on 07976 443 454.
