A live webinar for pig producers, designed to explore how to reduce input costs, while also looking at industry opportunities, is to be staged by AHDB Pork on Monday next week, February 15.
The online session, running from 6.30-7.30pm, is open to all producers and the allied industry. Questions and ideas will be welcomed during the event.
Hosted by AHDB knowledge transfer team lead, Stephen Winfield, the online discussion will feature AHDB analyst, Stephen Howarth, and Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority (Teagasc) pig development head, Ciarán Caroll.
“Irish pig producers are experiencing the same poor trading conditions (to the UK) and Mr Caroll will be online to share the strategies they’re adopting to help get through the coming months,” said AHDB Pork, adding that Mr Howarth will give an “up-to-the-minute analysis of prospects for the pig market, what is likely to happen next and why”.
AHDB’s export specialist, Jonathan Eckley, will also join the session to “highlight the opportunities for the British industry to sell more pork both overseas and at home to help support the pig price”.
