In this month’s episode of Pigs Today, a podcast brought to you by Pig World, host Lydia Turner chats with Young NPA members Flavian Obiero and Lee Thompson about the ongoing pig industry crisis, the situation with feed and the wider mental implications of what’s going on.
Flavian, originally from Kenya, talks about life as a young farmer and his brand new pig farming role in the industry. He discusses the first farm he ever worked on, how he fell in love with the industry, and how pig farming is truly a lifestyle, as well the industry’s current issues.
Lee Thompson, pig and poultry specialist at Harbro, chats about the current situation in the feed industry, offering insight what lies behind the current issues and the ever-growing problem of high feed prices and poor pig prices.
