National Pig Centre Jan. 1, 2020

from Farming Today· ·

At the National Pig Centre in Yorkshire, all of the latest technology is used to study the behaviour and development of pigs. From a computer programme which can recognise and track individual pigs throughout their lives...to precision feeding machines which monitor exactly how much each pig eats and drinks. In this programme, Charlotte Smith visits the facility on the day it opens, and meet the scientists who hope their research can shape future farming techniques and policy. Presented by Charlotte Smith Produced by Heather Simons
