The Eastern NPA Autumn Regional meeting takes place in Diss today - there is still time to book your place! 

The meeting will take place at  Diss Rugby Club on Tuesday, October 22, starting at 6.30pm with a hot buffet. 

Members will hear from the NPA team on a number of vitally important topics, including: 

  • Brexit and preparing for a no deal 
  • The new pig welfare code
  • The latest on African swine fever
  • Animal rights activism 
  • Environmental regulations

There will also be a presentation from APHA's Susanna Williamson on Salmonella in pigs, while AHDB's Bethan Wilkins will give an update on the global market situation, including the impact of ASF and the potential impact of Brexit.

NPA chief executive Zoe Davies said: “With so much to discuss at the moment, the Autumn Regionals offer a great opportunity for us to explain some of the detail on the big issues of the day, from the new welfare Code to a no deal Brexit, but also to hear your views.

"So book your place now!”

The NPA will be running the usual one-hour surgeries prior to the meetings. You can book a one-to-one slot with NPA staff should you wish to discuss something specific with them.
