Pig Industry Scholarship seeks new sponsors

22nd Jun 2017 / By Alistair Driver

The successful Pig Industry Scholarship is looking to recruit new sponsors for its fifth year.

The scheme, which works with students at Harper Adams University and is facilitated by AHDB, was set up to bring new talent into the pig industry.

Pig producers and allied industry companies are now being invited to join and offer a year-long paid placement for a second year BSc or first year FdSc student.

It helps raise the profile of careers in the pig industry and encourages new entrants while enabling individual businesses to cherry-pick high-calibre new employees. Previous sponsors have covered a diverse range of areas including nutrition, animal health, on farm production and agri-food and marketing.
