UK - Two new publications from AHDB Pork will be published in June and both provide a valuable source of information about the pig industry, reports Vikki Campbell, Acting Data and Analysis Manager at AHDB.

The Pig and Poultry Pocketbook, covers the whole supply chain, from farm to fork, including statistics on the structure of the industry, prices, production levels, carcase classification and retail sales & consumption. The 2017 Pig and Poultry Pocketbook, which has just been released, is the fifth edition of this popular publication.

The AHDB Pork Yearbook, due to be released in June, details the work being carried out in Knowledge Exchange, Research, Development and Innovation within AHDB. This covers research projects, field trials, skills and training and the industry in figures. The Yearbook also includes everything from technical performance trends and cost of production data, to carcase weights and average back fat measurements.

Understanding the current state of the industry and its competitors can help producers make the best possible business decisions and therefore aid in improving returns. This is where publications such as these can provide invaluable information and make an important contribution to supporting the sector.
