Encouraging entries to the 2019 EU PiG Grand Prix

EU PiG partner, Teagasc has recently been promoting the EU PiG project and Grand Prix with the West Cork Pig Discussion Group.  

Entries to the 2019 EU PiG Grand Prix are being collated by all of the Regional Pig Innovation Groups (RPIGs) across Europe ready for evaluation, ahead of the fast approaching closing date of 28 February. 

All pig producers are invited to enter their innovative ideas and examples of on-farm best practice in this annual EU-wide contest, with up to 300 producers competing to become an EU PiG Ambassador.  EU PiG is looking for entries that tackle one of eight Grand Prix challenges, identified as current priorities by the industry, within the project’s key themes. 

For full details of the eight challenges for 2019 and how to enter, along with case studies on the previous years’ winning Ambassadors, please click here
