As with the first meeting last week, the NPA team will run through the hot topics of the day, including the latest on Defra’s review of contractual practice in the pig supply chain and updates on farrowing systems, African swine fever, slurry grants, environmental policy and more.

There will also be a discussion on the forthcoming NPA elections and there will be a market update from AHDB, while AHDB will also discuss its proposals to raise the levy rate.

As always, members will have the opportunity to ask questions and have your say.
