Do you have a success story?


The Knowledge Transfer (KT) team is looking for producers to step up and feature in case studies - to show how they achieve success in some of the most important areas of gilt production. Seeing what other units do is always interesting and the art of gilt management varies between most units. We are very interested in talking to anyone:


  • With units that use boars for first service followed by AI, achieving good numbers born

  • With units where they feel they have a successful system buying in gilts and successful system breeding their own gilts

  • Who does not get a second litter drop

It is important that the information we provide is practical and relevant and being able to share your experiences on farm is key. Please contact your Regional KT Manager or Helen Thoday on 07973 710202 or helen.thoday@bpex.org.uk.
