UK - Register now to secure one of the remaining spaces at this month’s Two-Tonne Sow Focus on Health conferences which will help tackle the physical and financial cost of pig disease.

The conferences will run on 17, 18 and 19 October 2011 in Cirencester, Stowmarket and Wetherby respectively.

Conference organiser Miriam Drewett said: "The programme features a huge range of practical knowledge of pig disease challenges and how to control them with speakers from the UK, US and Denmark. Plus, we’ve invited a panel of local producers, vets and allied companies to each event to add their own response to the key speakers.

"We will also be using a live audience voting system, so everyone will have chance to share their views.

"Improving herd health is a central part of our drive for more efficient English pig production and to reach our target of two tonnes of pig meat per sow per year."

Each half-day conference starts at 2.00pm and finishes at around 6.00pm with a buffet. Attendance is free for producers and £20 plus VAT for non-producers. The deadline to reserve places is 30 September 2011.

For companies with products and services relating to pig health, there are small exhibition spaces available for £50 plus VAT per day.

The 2TS Focus on Health season follows the launch of the 20:20 Pig Health and Welfare Strategy and the new national Pig Health Improvement Project.
