Voting opens in NPA elections

Voting is now open in the NPA elections, which will see members to elect a new Pig Industry Group.

A total of 31 candidates from right across the pig sector will compete for 17 places in the first ever PIG elections. The newly elected group will consist of 10 producer and seven allied industry members.

Voting will be open for just over a month, until February 26, with the successful candidates announced in the March issue of Pig World and online.
