A cornerstone for the pig industry calendar the National Pig Awards took place this week in London. The exclusive event to the pig industry highlighted the breadth and depth of talent, drive, and ambition in the pig sector.
This year’s awards were hosted by comedian Stephen K Amos, recognised and rewarded excellence across the industry, declaring 15 winners on the night.
As principal sponsor of the events ForFarmers’ had the privilege of announcing the winners for ‘Indoor Producer or the Year’ and ‘Outdoor Producer of the Year’ as well as the coveted grand finale- overall ‘Producer of the Year’.
LSB Pigs, a 1600-sow outdoor unit, based in Norfolk, were crowned Producer of the Year. The team was recognised for their innovative approach and excellent performance results on their outdoor pig production unit.
