Visit Menter Moch Cymru at this year’s RWAS Countryside & Smallholder Festival

14 May 2019
If you are a pig keeper you should visit Menter Moch Cymru at this year’s RWAS Countryside & Smallholder Festival (Llanelwedd, May 18&19).
 
Pig keepers will want to head straight to the Pig Section. Menter Moch Cymru, in collaboration with Farming Connect and Hybu Cig Cymru has invited four highly regarded pig experts to give a series of daily presentations and practical demonstrations. 
 
Targeted at a wide spectrum of pig keepers from those new to the sector to more experienced stock keepers, this is your chance to find out what to look out for when purchasing weaners; how to keep your pigs healthy; land management and marketing. Each day an award-winning pig producer will share their personal experiences of starting out and how they’ve got to where they are today.
 
Kyle Holford, a Great Taste Winner from Forest Coalpit Farm in the Brecon Beacons, who sells his speciality pork from cross-bred Duroc and Large Black pigs directly to top London chefs and butchers, will also be sharing his top tips on successful pig rearing.
