TODAY'S NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Prices continue their precipitous descent
October 22, 2014
Both the Standard Pig Price and the Average Pig Price continued their precipitous descent today as Europe continues to wallow in a glut of cheap pork, which is proving too attractive for British retailers and manufacturers to resist.

Manifestos move up the popularity parade
October 22, 2014
The Producer Group election manifesto page has quickly become the fourth most visited page on this website.

NPA Producer Brief published today

The latest issue of NPA Producer Brief has been emailed to members today.

First allied industry candidate
October 21, 2014
The first allied industry candidate has sent in his nomination paper and manifesto for election to NPA Allied Industry Group. Hugh Crabtree was founder chairman of the original Allied Industry Group, which was created when NPA was formed in late 1999.

Another candidate steps forward for Producer Group

NPA annual meeting

The next meeting of NPA Producer Group will be at the Mothers Union headquarters in London at 11am on November 4, and will be followed by the association's annual general meeting at approximately 3pm.

Pig industry lays its plans for reducing use of antimicrobials
October 21, 2014
How much antibiotic do British pig farmers use? The truth is that nobody knows, as current measures can only give an approximation. So better data is essential. This was the key message from an industry workshop.

We're getting younger
October 19, 2014
The pig industry age profile is is gradually getting lower, according to demographic data for this website. True, 25 percent of visitors are 65 or over, but we would have suspected that to be the case. The encouraging statistics are that 23 percent are 45-54, and 20 percent are mere children (in pig industry terms) at 35-44. We could do with more female visitors though.

The National Pig Association is the representative trade association for British commercial pig producers
and is allied to the NFU and represents the pig interests of NFU members.
National Pig Association, Agriculture House, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire CV8 2TZ. Registered in England No. 3859242.
