This week’s guests:
Jen Waters, Head of Knowledge Exchange (Pork)

Lauren Dimmack, Animal Health & Welfare Scientist

In this pork-focused episode, we discuss the standard pig price (SPP) with Duncan Wyatt and Jen waters. We talk about out what does and doesn’t contribute to it, the impact of heavy pigs, and whether the price rises as quickly as it falls.

We also talk about export health certificates (EHC) – what’s changed, what you need to do to comply, and the latest position with Trichinella testing.
