Following the huge success of the Pigs 2022 conference in 2017, Pig World and AHDB (EU PiG Coordinator) are delighted to announce a new event for 2019 – Pigs Tomorrow, a 2 day conference, to be held at The Jurys Inn Hotel, Hinckley, Leicestershire.
RPIG for Spain, Emma Fàbrega i Romans of IRTA will be delivering a workshop on 21st November about the EU PiG project.
The event has been organised by Innovatiesteunpunt to recognise all the Belgian entrants to the Grand Prix 2017, with a theme around welfare – the care and treatment of livestock through increased understanding of the welfare requirements.
This year’s conference organised by Teagasc featured a number of excellent presentations covering a broad array of topics relating to nutrition, pre-weaning mortality, insurance and farm investment to name but a few. The guest speaker Dr. Bob Goodband from Kansas State University looked at both sow and grower diets for the modern pig.
A comprehensive report on the conference and the issues discussed is now available on the Teagasc website, and downloaded from here. the event presentations were also videoed, which will also be uploaded to the Teagasc website soon.
The two-day Conference Programme in the UK, organised by Pig World and AHDB Pork, addressed some of the big issues facing the industry – antibiotics, BREXIT, health and welfare and the changing consumer. The focus of the conference was the innovation required to remain competitive.
