A DVD which gives an introduction to the pig industry has been uploaded to pig levy payers’ group BPEX’s website.

The DVD gives a complete grounding in everything from artificial insemination through different production systems to finishing and marketing groups. The aim is for it to have as wide an appeal as possible to anybody entering the industry who needed to understand how it works.

BPEX’s Andrew Knowles said: “This is a one-stop shop for people who want to know about the industry. Many organisations will have new starters who will be closely involved with the pig industry but may not have much background knowledge of how it all works.

“As well as being available as a DVD, it is now on the BPEX website so people can dip in and out of it as needed.

“It will be of great value, not only to pig businesses as part of their induction, but also to civil servants and retailers who need an understanding of the industry.”
