Practical Pig Producers Conference

Practical Pig Producers Conference 2021

Thanks for attending the PPPC this week. We hope you found it useful. We will be distributing notes from each presentation in the coming weeks.

Lateral flow test

In light of the current Covid situation in the UK and the close proximity we were in this week, we would recommend you take a lateral flow test when convenient. This is a precautionary measure but will hopefully safeguard both yourselves and the people you come into contact with on a daily basis. Thank you.


Kind regards,

AM Warkup, Primary Diets, Charman Agriculture, Rattlerow and AgroVision
