Dates for your diary - NPA Spring Regionals

11th Mar 2020 / By Alistair Driver

The NPA Spring Regional meetings are set to get underway at the end of this month, with the usual array of highly topical issues to discuss.

There will be updates on the recent Agriculture and Environment Bills, African swine fever, animal rights activity, the future of farrowing crates and the Welfare Code, as well as the latest on the market from AHDB.

George Drake, from Leytons, has been invited to all of the meetings talk about the company’s work in helping pig farmers benefit from tax credits for innovative work.

You can book a slot to meet NPA staff before each meeting to discuss any specific issues.

All meetings start with a hot buffet.
