Pig Breeding & Rearing

Our Pig management team are passionate about social responsibility, today's welfare and tomorrow's environment. Members of our team sit on nationally approved guidance councils and we welcome the ability to develop ours and the industry's knowledge and ability to improve environmental and welfare issues on our farms.

We have recently invested nearly £5million in state of the art facilities, with animal welfare and continuing research, development and best practice at the top of our agenda.
