Campbell wins top pig industry award
Former NPA regional manager Ian Campbell has been
awarded the David Black Award, one of the most prestigious pig industry awards
at the House of Lords.
The award was handed over by new
DEFRA minister for farming and the environment, Jane Kennedy after a speech by
former minister Lord Rooker. Campbell, who began his career in the animal feed
sector, gained national recognition in his involvement with the British Pig
Industry Support Group and subsequent involvement with the NPA.
Rooker said, "Ian has made a significant contribution to the pig sector above
all through his ability to communicate not only with producers, but also with
partners in the supply chain, welfare groups, government officials and
receiving his award, said, "I am honoured my peers in the pig industry think I
am worthy of this accolade. I have sat at previous breakfasts and thought how
much the recipient deserved it. There seems something slightly wrong in being
honoured for time spent working in an industry that had given him so much
pleasure”. Click here for the free Pig Progress
