    Have A Say In Pig Industry Future

Pig farmers are being offered the chance to have a say in how their levy money is spent over the next few years.


Major changes are taking place as the Meat and Livestock Commission is being disbanded and BPEX will become a company limited by guarantee under the new Levy Board UK.

All the work of BPEX is funded by the levy paid on every pig which goes through into the food chain.

BPEX Chief Executive Mick Sloyan said: "This gives us all an excellent opportunity to review and revise the Road to Recovery - the strategy aimed at creating a sustainable and profitable pig industry.

"BPEX is holding a series of meetings around the country to get the views of pig farmers to ensure the strategy meets the needs of the industry."

Monday, June 18, at Driffield Rugby Club; Tuesday June 19, at The George Hotel, Lincoln; Wednesday, June 20, at The Grange Hotel, Bury St Edmunds; Tuesday, June 26, at Harper Adams; Wednesday, June 27, at Exeter Market.

All are timed to run from 6pm to 8pm and a buffet will be provided. Anybody interested in attending should get in touch with their BPEX Regional Manager whose details can be found on the website,
