The Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Brendan Smith TD officially launched the new FETAC Level 6 course on pig production which was developed by Teagasc, in consultation with industry representatives, to meet the needs of those working in the pig sector.

Teagasc developed this two-year training programme in pig production tailored to the requirements of those already working on pig units and the owners and managers of these farms. A gap in training over the last ten years was identified in a Strategic Plan for the pig industry published in 2008. The new course addresses this deficit and will play a key role in teaching the required husbandry skills for all involved in the pig industry which has a farm-gate value of around €360 million annually.
