 Hello everyone,

We have extended our pig meeting series!

Due to requests from the Central and Southern contingent while we were organising our Northern meeting in Nairn, we have now decided to put on both a Central and a Southern meeting as well, instead of just having one for the North and one for the South.

The Central meeting is as follows, in Perth:
Pig disease and biosecurity for Smallholders:  Disseminating the results of the smallholder pig keeping survey
Venue: Gloagburn Farm Shop, Gloagburn Farm, Tibbermore, Perth, PH1 1QL
Date and Time: Thursday, May 21st 6.15 for 6.30 pm
Madeleine Henry and Carla Gomes (researchers from SRUC Inverness) together with Caroline Robinson (Veterinary Investigation officer from SAC Consulting, Perth) invite you to a evening meeting to discuss the findings of a recent Scottish survey carried out in 2013 with a focus on biosecurity for smallholders and those involved in small-scale production.
Caroline Robinson will give a talk on pig welfare and disease as it relates to smallholders.
We would be pleased if you could join us for an hour or two, have a light complimentary supper and join in the discussions related to our findings.
Please drop us a quick email or phone us to let us know if you are coming –this will assist with our catering arrangements.
To register or for more information please contact:
Madeleine Henry on 01463 246060 or email

The South of Scotland meeting will follow shortly – date and location to be confirmed.

If you would like a place, please either reply to this email, or drop Madeleine a line!

Kind regards,


P.S. The food at Gloagburn is rather lovely so I am certainly looking forward to the soup-and-sandwich supper!
