Forum, Members and Events section updates

6th Mar 2017 / By Alistair Driver

Upates have been posted today on the open Forum, Members and Events sections of the website. 

The Forum post welcomes recent progress with uploading antibiotic data to the eMB-Pigs database - and politely points out that it has been compulsory to use it in Scotland's quality assurance scheme since the end of last year. 

Despite the recent recent improvements, are we doing enough yet to record antibiotic usage data?

"Comments please," the post requests.

To post a comment on this or indeed any subject (the groundbreaking Real Welfare report, for example?), send your message to

We have also updated the Members' area with new information on the animal rights movement targeting the pig sector. 

And there are some new dates in our Events section, accessed from the home page, including AHDB Pork meetings this week on gilt management, plus more details on the NPA Spring Regionals.
