Virtual Pig Week 2020 - Thursday

Virtual Pig Week 2020 - Thursday

The focus of Virtual Pig Week on Thursday, 22 October is Biosecurity & Energy use. It includes a virtual farm visit to Eugene & Ciarán Sheehan’s progressive pig farm in Co. Cork.

Live@Moorepark - 1.30pm

On day three Eugene and Ciarán will tell us about how improving biosecurity on their pig farm has led to great improvements in production and reduced antibiotic use. They will also discuss their use of alternative energy, solar and biomass, on their farm and the benefits they have seen since switching.

The live panel for this event will be hosted by Gerard McCutcheon, Teagasc Pig Development Department Specialist Advisor

The latest research and the best technical advice and information for pig producers will be broadcast live from Teagasc Moorepark at 1.30pm each day from Tuesday 20 until Friday, 23 October. The ‘Virtual Pig Week’ is being organised by the Teagasc Pig Development Department.
