    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    Interviewed on Radio 4 about the CO2 shocker, Nick Allen , CEO of BMPA sounded genuinely shaken and not knowing what to do next. He didn't sound like a poker player tbh

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    This is not the time to state that. There are massive welfare cases looming. I suppose the news that the Teesside fertiliser works shut without notice forcing a CO2 shortage is their fault too I'm praying an on-farm euthanasia programme does not have to happen in the next few weeks

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    I think you need to recognise the integrators are more capable of looking after their own short term issues on their farms, it's the independents that are being crucified right now

    100,000 pigs to be destroyed

    It's a desperate situation 27,500 sows going out and many stopping breeding or packing up. One on the NPA meeting the other night will see the sows going after 55 years building it up The current rollover is way over 100,000 already and folks who jiggled around and found additional temporary...

    Guy Smith's response to FW article on AIC rules.

    A politician amassing as much capital from mentions of complaints elsewhere , kind of recognising them and still then drawing the conclusion you'd be better off in the industry with Red Tractor Not convinced

    I know someone (who detests him) but got a video message from him to her Nephew for his 18th Birthday. £76 for about a minute with Farage speaking to camera sat on the edge of his bed. Bizarre !!

    AHDB and Red Tractor

    Maybe. Depends on how long and how far we export our market due to Gov action. Coming close after this immediate crisis is the noises off about farrowing crates etc. The last industry contraction was 800,000 to about 400,000 sows and it never recovered

    AHDB and Red Tractor

    I'd agree with that . Lizzie Wilson , Becca Veale , Andrea Tranter in the office and Charlie Dewhirst. Small tight knit and focussed group . No ivory towers and lots of industry engagement. As I said we're very lucky to have them
