LBM produces the monthly print publication Pig World and its regular supplements, the website www.pig-world.co.uk, Weekly Tribune – a paid-for weekly pricing and commodities newsletter for the pig industry, The National Pig Awards, and a series of round tables for the UK pig industry.
These products are all owned by LBM, but Pig World is also the journal of the National Pig Association and LBM works very closely with the NPA on all its projects.
In May 2016, LBM launched a Website and Newsletter for the UK Poultry Industry, www.poultrynews.co.uk
In June 2016, LBM acquired the trade and certain assets of Grove House Publishing, from Zinc Media, formerly Ten Alps Publishing. The acquisition includes:
- Farm Business
- Agronomist and Arable Farmer
- Over the Counter
- Pig and Poultry Marketing
- The Cream Awards
- The Food and Farming Awards
- OTC Awards
- The Pig and Poultry Marketing Awards
And all associated websites and sub-brands.
These publications and events will all continue as planned for the next period. LBM will conduct a strategic review of the positioning and direction of all these products over the next three months and will come up with a new strategy for the agricultural market in autumn 2016.
