Ed said: "I have tried to highlight the main policies that really matter to members, from Brexit to farrowing crates, labour policy and more.

"But this summary should only be taken as a guide only to each of the main parties’ positions on issues relevant to the pig sector, and does not provide an exhaustive list of policies."

"We are making sure the pig industry's voice is heard in this election. We have written to every candidate, forwarding our manifesto and we have had some intriguing responses coming in."
