Pig farmers wanted for biosecurity research
11th Oct 2019 / By Alistair Driver
PhD student Cennydd Jones, from Aberystwyth University, is looking for pig farmers to take part in important research on biosecurity.
A farmers' son with direct experience of the disease, he is currently studying a PhD on the environmental reservoirs of Mycobacterium bovis (Bovine Tb).
He is investigating farmers' attitudes towards biosecurity and disease prevention and is aiming to get a sample of 400+ farmers from all over the UK, with respondents from different livestock sectors.
In a post on the forum he writes: "As someone who has a small herd of Welsh pigs, I would hope that the results from this questionnaire would help pig farmers as well. There is also a chance to win a pair of Dunlop wellies."
