Eight pig producers from across Europe have won international awards for their innovation in pig production. They are the winning entrants in the EU PiG Innovation Group (EU PiG) Grand Prix and have each been awarded the title of EU PiG Ambassador.
It is an annual competition designed to identify best practice on pig farms and share it with pig producers throughout the European network and beyond.
