Famous Five lead the way

5th Dec 2017 / By Digby Scott

So far there are five candidates for the 12 seats on NPA’s Producer Group.

pg nominees‘They're pretty high calibre too,’ observes chief executive Zoe Davies, ‘but I hope that won’t deter others from putting their name forward… we need a broad range of producers to be sure all corners of our diverse industry have a voice at the top table.’

But don’t hang around… deadline for nominations is January 8, and it'll be with us before you can mutter despairingly, ‘Santa’s sleigh bells’.

What does Producer Group discuss?

If you are thinking of standing for the NPA’s Producer Group, have you ever wondered what it does? At its latest meeting in London, the usual range of issues was on the agenda, including:

Antibiotic usage and targets: Where do we go from here after the announcement on progress made in cutting usage and the new long-term targets?

LA-MRSA pig industry strategy: The NPA is formulating a new strategy to address LA-MRSA in pigs. What should it look like?

NPA Incursion Support Network: How can the British pig industry work together to address the growing threat posed by activists?

Post-Brexit support mechanisms: Millions of pounds could be available to producers under a new domestic agricultural policy. What should the pig industry be asking for?

Future of Ladies in Pigs: The future of LIPs is in doubt. What is the best way forward?
