Judges inspected entries on the first morning of the Fair for cost-effective new products that will make life easier and improve productivity. The Insight Scanner came top thanks to its robust, easy-to-use and cable-free design. The hand-held scanner will market for £3,000.

A runner-up award went to AM Warkup for its new Groovee Feeder, developed by Paul Wright. Warkups will market this ‘new direction’ in pig feeding, that allows pigs to take food at a more natural angle and may have the potential to reduce waste, for £285.

The second runner-up award went to Rotech for a new foam that allows more effective cleaning of pig accommodation. MS Topfoam softens and breaks down dirt before pressure washing and is marketed for £85 for 22kg, which is sufficient for the annual cleaning of 100-sow places.
