Four meetings for pig producers, focusing on practical ways to manage input costs, are being run by AHDB Pork during March.
Designed to assist the industry as it faces “tough times and rock bottom prices”, the meetings will seek to help producers re-evaluate their units and get ideas on simple changes that could strengthen their business through the coming months.
“The meetings are an opportunity to hear from key industry figures and producers, ask questions and work through some ‘what if’ calculations to help decide how to influence the cost of production,” said AHDB Pork’s lead knowledge transfer manager, Steve Winfield (pictured above).
Meeting details and speakers are as follows:
- March 3 (Midlands) – Weedon, Daventry – Nick White, Richard Bull
- March 15 (East) – Diss – Stephen Hall, Richard Bull and Simon Watchorn
- March 22 (South West) – Exeter – Jonathan French, Richard Bull and Tim Blanchard
- March 23 (Shropshire) – Hodnet – Nick White, Richard Bull
Another date will be added in the North in due course.
