PRODUCTIVITY problems in the British pig industry are
being tackled in a joint venture by the Red Meat Industry
Forum (RMIF) and the British Pig Executive (BPEX).
A small improvement in productivity could pay big dividends
for the whole industry and a series of workshops highlighting
best practice in Artificial Insemination (AI) are being
held to show how.
The training sessions, aimed at pig keepers, managers
and stockmen will be held on 9 March at Writtle College,
Essex, 16 March at Easton College, Norwich and on 23 March
at Otley College, Ipswich.
RMIF On-Farm Project Manager, Clare Wise said: "RMIF
and BPEX have joined forces to show how AI best practice
can really improve your bottom line.
The workshops will air practical tips, techniques and
ideas for increasing AI efficiency."
Part of the BPEX AI programme, the meetings mark the third
round of workshops funded by the East of England Development
Agency (EEDA), having already covered the subjects of veterinary
medicines, growth promoter withdrawal and weaner management.
