East Anglian producers start US tour

Our group of producers from East Anglia has arrived safely in the US and, after our first full day at World Pork Expo, there are a couple of interesting bits to mention…

We’ve seen a biodegradable mat that can be used in a farrowing house, which claims to help reduce scour and reduce mortality.

Also found a water additive that is inexpensive and currently being used successfully in Ireland and Holland.

And had an interesting presentation from Elanco, including Dr Keith Hayden who gave us some insight into the US pig industry.

We’ll also be visiting some pig units during the next few days. Please comment below if there’s anything you’d like us to try and find out from the US industry while we’re here.
