The National Pig Awards are now open for entries, with the winners to be unveiled at an awards ceremony in London this autumn.

The award categories will have a familiar look, recognising those who have excelled in pig production and rearing, stockmanship, unit management, pedigree breeding, marketing innovation and animal care. There will be the usual strong focus on the pig farmers and vets of the future, while the important allied sectors will be recognised.
