Pig conference targets financial returns

A Bpex conference aims to help pig producers improve financial returns.

The conference will show producers that the biggest opportunity they have to make money is through their finishing performance.

According to Bpex the finishing enterprise has the greatest potential to generate the largest financial return from pig production. Every effort to make more money should be made and there are a lot of areas that remain untapped, the organisation said.

The 2TS Focus on Finishing conference will feature both pig producers and technical experts, who will share the latest research and experience in finisher pig management.

Buildings, health and Elanco’s Full Value Pig programme will also be covered in the conference. There will be an interactive quiz, open question-and-answer session with the speakers and the 2TS Finisher Challenge awards.

Producers can attend the conference for free in four different locations between 22 and 25 October this year. There are also new venues in the south west and the West Midlands to make it more accessible to as many pig producers as possible.

Conference dates are as follows:

  • Monday 22 October - Exeter Racecourse
  • Tuesday 23 October - Dunsley Hall Hotel, Stourton, Staffordshire
  • Wednesday 24 October - Diss Rugby Club
  • Thursday 25 October - Wetherby Racecourse

Producers interested in attending should register before 16 October by emailing clancy.smith@bpex.ahdb.org.uk or calling 0247 647 8792.
