Pig producers urged to enter EU PiG Grand Prix

The 2019 European Pig Innovation Group (EU PiG) Grand Prix is open for entries until 28 February 2019. All pig producers are invited to enter their innovative ideas and examples of on-farm best practice in this annual EU-wide contest, with up to 300 producers competing to become an EU PiG Ambassador.

EU PiG is looking for entries that tackle one of eight Grand Prix challenges, identified as current priorities by the industry, within the project’s key themes. The eight Grand Prix challenges for 2019 are:

Winning one of the eight Ambassador titles in the EU PiG Grand Prix gives producers the chance to receive international recognition of their success, share their best practice with other producers, get in touch with other Ambassadors to perhaps find their next big idea and achieve added motivation for farm staff.

Beta leads on the project’s dissemination activities and is responsible for transferring the best practice identified via EU PiG’s annual Grand Prix, into user friendly tools and materials targeted at pig producers across Europe, to showcase how industry challenges can be addressed.
