Allied industry manifestos


The pig industry continues to face a number of challenges, not least Brexit uncertainty, security and disease challenges and the requirement to reduce antibiotics. I have put myself forward for election to the NPA Allied Industry Group to continue to proactively assist this great industry and play a key role in supporting producers and the NPA throughout future challenges and opportunities.

In my role as ForFarmers Pig Feed Sales Director I am fortunate enough to get great insight into processes and experiences of both United Kingdom producers and continental colleagues and producers; not only on nutrition but other aspects of pig production. One of the most pressing challenges today is the reduction of antibiotics and I would like to leverage and apply their experience in this area to help the NPA and United Kingdom producers where relevant in this important area.

I am truly passionate about the United Kingdom pig industry, and seek to stand for election to support the excellent work of the NPA and producers and contribute to the continued success of this dynamic industry, to help ensure it remains sustainable and profitable for future generations. I therefore respectfully ask for your kind consideration and support for my election.
