EU PiG Grand Prix launched
10th Mar 2017 / By Alistair Driver
On-farm best practice from across the major pig producing countries in Europe will be captured and disseminated via a new knowledge-sharing project.
The EU PiG Innovation Group (EU PiG) aims to support the competitiveness of the European pig industry through identifying and sharing ground breaking innovations and validated best practices. The project, led by AHDB, is funded by the European Commission, building an expert network of 19 organisations representing 13 European member states.
Best practice will be identified through a novel ‘EU PiG Grand Prix’. These annual, local contests will identify best practice in each thematic area, with producers going on to compete at a European level for the coveted title of ‘EU PiG Ambassador’.
