Pig Health and Welfare Council Biennial Report 2019–2020
This report from the Pig Health and Welfare Council (PHWC) recounts the activities of the council during 2019 and 2020.
Welcome to the fifth report of the Pig Health and Welfare Council (PHWC), which recounts the activities of the council during 2019 and 2020.
Since the last report, the 20:20 vision has been enhanced to reflect the integration of the industry in delivering pig health and welfare. The objective of the council for 2020–2030 is to support the pig industry in enhancing the health and welfare of the pig herd, and enabling assurance that pork products are safe to eat, and produced from pigs whose health and welfare needs have been met.
The objectives are discussed further in this report, and aim to provide a targeted, streamlined and clear approach.
The Council greatly appreciates the work and collaboration of those across the pork chain throughout Great Britain. In addition, the expertise and commitment to pig health and welfare is integral to the success of the Council.
