National Pig Awards 2016
On Wednesday evening (9th November) the National Pig Awards took place at the Lancaster Hotel close to London’s Hyde Park. A good number of Garth, Integra and Acorn clients were nominated for awards ranging from Pig Producer of the Year through to Trainee of the Year, most of them joining us as guests. A tense evening looked to be in store for the nervy nominees. However that tension soon disappeared as those nominations became outright successes with almost all of our customers taking home the prize they were entered for.
One after another they took to the stage to receive their awards from the category sponsor and the excellent TV sports presenter Hazel Irvine who hosted the awards with some great banter and anecdotes from her many years in broadcasting. It was great for those of us that attended to see the hard work of these dedicated pig professionals rewarded in the prestigious arena. We would like to pass on our congratulations to the following clients who were successful on the evening plus all the other prize winners and nominees for all their efforts…
§ Herd Productivity Award – Indoor – Bill Bramhill, JSR Farms, Southburn, East Yorkshire.
§ Trainee of the Year Award – Jess Graves, Shedden Farms, York.
§ Unit Manager of the Year – Gareth Virgo, J.E. Porter, Lincolnshire.
§ Indoor Producer of the Year – Bedfordia Farms, Bedfordshire.
