Red Tractor pig scheme members have until today to complete the new online welfare training requirement.
The online training was developed by AHDB in collaboration with Red Tractor, the National Pig Association, the Pig Veterinary Society, the Pig Health and Welfare Council, and pig producers.
It has been introduced to demonstrates to consumers that this is a responsible industry that takes the care and welfare of our livestock seriously. It is also an excellent refresher tool for those experienced with handling pigs and a great way to up-skill new entrants.
What do you need to know?
- The cost of the online training (£10) is being waived until this deadline, or until 8,000 people register.
- The moving and handling module takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete, however, you can pause and save your progress as you go along.
- When you complete the training, you will receive a digital certificate that can be saved for Red Tractor audits and uploaded to PigPro, the pig industry’s online training record.
