Bridging the knowledge gap for a sustainable European pig industry.

Become an ambassador for the EU pig industry through our regional contests.
Aims of the project
The EU PiG Innovation Group (EU PiG) helps pig producers find tried-and-tested best practice from fellow producers across Europe, sharing all new knowledge in one place, online.
It’s about connecting producers and sharing the latest best practice and innovations to help improve farm efficiency and raise the competitiveness of the European pig industry. Each country has its own Regional Pig Innovation Group (RPIG) as the first point of contact which links pig producers and other experts to identify emerging issues for EU PiG and share knowledge and best practice.
The main way best practice is identified is the EU PiG Grand Prix, an annual EU-wide contest, with more than 300 producers competing to be one of eight EU PiG Ambassadors. This website will share their award-winning best practice via virtual farm tours, photos and reports.
It brings similar benefits to going on a study tour to farms across Europe: producers usually learn something valuable from other pig units, and EU PiG provides another easy and practical way to do this.
