Study day pig farming 'inspiring best practices from Europe'

On Friday, 1st December, 2017, the Innovation Support Center organized the first study day of inspiring best practices in pig farming from Europe in the headquarters of Boerenbond in Leuven, Belgium.  Fifty farmers, researchers and stakeholders from the pig industry were present during this event.  During this seminar, Tom Schaeken from the innovation support center brought a selection of the most inspiring stories that participated in a major European competition called the EU PiG Grand Prix.

In 2017, 312 pig farmers participated in this competition for best practices, including 24 Belgians.
