Survey reveals UK Pig farmers staying positive
Despite rising feed costs, more than half of pig and
poultry farmers are looking to expand their businesses in the next three
A survey, conducted by organic feed manufacturer Hi Peak Feeds at last
month's Pig and Poultry Fair found 54 per cent of farmers were looking to
expand, while a further 21 would 'seriously consider it'.
Of the 81
farmers questioned, 70 per cent had a confident outlook, despite 91 per cent
expecting feed costs to rise further. Countering the optimism were 11% of
farmers who envisaged leaving the sectors altogether and 7% who could muster no
confidence in anything.Related WebsiteHi Peak Feeds
