Getting to grips with new welfare training: Somerset

Past Event - booking closed

Tuesday, 30 November 2021

7:00pm - 9:30pm

The Thatched Cottage Inn, Charlton Road, Shepton Mallet, Somerset


Red Tractor has announced changes to its assurance standards following an industry-wide consultation; these will apply from 1 November 2021.

One of the new requirements is that anyone involved with the care of pigs must complete online pig welfare training in key areas, including best practice around moving and handling pigs.

During the meeting I'll be explaining what this means in practice and answering any questions you might have. 

The new welfare training platform, developed by AHDB and key stakeholders, is due to go live soon. In the meantime, you can find out more about the training here.
We'll also be discussing the business resilience funding that’s available to help farmers navigate the fallout of the loss of direct payments and help future proof their businesses.
