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.
The 2018 European Pig Innovation Group (EU PiG) Grand Prix is open for entries until 28 February 2018.
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.
The first eight EU ‘Grand Prix’ 2017 winners have been announced, with each offering innovative examples of best practice relating to one the EU PiG themes; health, welfare, precision production, and meat quality.
With the competitors for the first EU ‘Grand Prix’ now known following the closing date for applications on 5th April 2017, a press release was issued to clarify the next stages.
