RPA COMPLIANCE VISIT
Anyone claiming single farm payment is subject to a compliance visit at any time,without advance warning.I have just had such a visit as Im a pigkeeper and there are not many people keeping pigs and claiming SFP.
As this visit was entirely to inspect the pigs and all the records relating to pigs such as medicine books,storage of antibiotics/drugs,movement/transport records and the conditions the pigs are kept in,it is best to be up-to-date.
No problems found here ,but if there are the SFP can be reduced even if the pigs never see the outdoors.
Be ready ,be up to date as Im sure you all are

There used to be a video on utube with Chris Impey de tusking a Berkshire (1 week ago)Glyn Morgan:
It's been many years since I de tusked a boar. We used a noose on the nose which was tied to a very strong post once attached to the animal.A couple of gates either side and while the animal was pulling backwards use a cheese wire or small hacksaw. Stresnil a sedative was also given to calm him if he was a bit frisky.I don't know if stresnil is still available these days and the job can be done without but be careful. (3 days ago)Brian Lee:
Cheers .. yes it's stu available thanks (3 days ago)
ROYAL CHESHIRE SHOW 2017
There was an awesome turn out of saddleback pigs from five breeders traveling from all over England.this presented the judge Andy Gready with a real task in judging such a fine turn out of quality Saddleback pigs,the largest breed section at this show.The Newth family made their long journey worth while by taking the breed champion and reserve as well. But not to be out done my January boar,COAL YEAT PREFECT,went on to win the interbreed young male pig of the year heat.
It was a real family affair with Harry doing all the pen work preparing the pigs for the ring ,Imogen showing the pigs and Peggy and Doris learning the showing skills with the gilts in the ring.
Thank you to Janice Wood ,the head steward, for ensuring this is always such a happy show to bring pigs to.
But it was so very hot ,two of the hottest days of the year with record breaking temperatures,yet the saddleback pigs and handlers ploughed on regardless.
Well done to you all :) (3 days ago)
