Still very busy

June 4, 2014 | Oakfield

Lots of parties, weddings and christenings – with British Lop Pigs proving very poplar. Our local abattoir has recently increased their prices. It now costs almost £30 for a pig to be slaughtered and checked by on-site vets. We are also very conscious of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea (PED) virus, and as a consequence have had to restrict visitors to the farm. This disease has yet to enter the UK, and we would like to keep it that way.
