PigSustain – Predicting the impacts of intensification of and future changes to the UK pig industry

Share on Twitter  Reading time: 2 minutes

This project uses a multi-disciplinary, integrated systems approach to model and assess the resilience of the UK pig industry, currently and in the future.

The research team will produce models to predict the impacts of intensification, changes in climate, trade, feed prices and demand, on the health, disease and welfare of the animals: how consumption patterns and retail prices are likely to be affected; how these changes will impact farmers; and how these in turn will impact on the health and welfare of the animals.
