Pig equipment specialist Quality Equipment has marked the 20th anniversary of its success with the Transition Feeder with dealers and partners from around the world flying in for a weekend of celebration.
With more than 11,000 Transition Feeders sold to over 30 countries, Quality Equipment, based in Woolpit, Suffolk, said it wanted to celebrate a UK export success story.
During the event, international visitors, from as far afield as Japan, were taken on an itinerary through Norfolk and Suffolk taking in an outdoor pig unit, specialist straw based finisher unit with lunch at the Larling Angel followed by a tour of the English Whiskey Company in East Harling.
The celebrations culminated in an evening drinks reception and hog roast at the company’s recently completed new office and distribution building. They were joined by more than 100 UK farmers, many who were instrumental in the early adoption and trialling of the Transition Feeder, staff and guests including from the European research and academic sector.
