About the EVENT

Over the last few decades there have been significant changes in pig production with genetics and nutrition driving greater efficiencies every day. Future challenges, like reducing medicinal zinc oxide levels, antibiotics and impact on the environment, will all require evolution in the way pigs are fed. 

The Progressive Pig Producers Conference, taking place on 7th March, will discuss the challenges and opportunities these changes present and bring together a collection of industry partners with new and innovative nutritional technologies that can support producers in the future.
