2020 National Pig Awards winners announced

This year’s National Pig Awards were streamed live on Monday 16th November. The awards have highlighted the fantastic work being done by individuals and businesses across the pig sector. Congratulations to all our winners and, indeed, all those shortlisted, who are setting a great example for others to follow.

A special thanks to our sponsors, judging panel and co-organisers as without their support we simply would not be here today.
