More than 70% of pig finishing herds in England and Wales are taking advantage of regular assessments from specialist pig vets analysing health conditions in pig carcasses slaughtered.

Members who join the British Pig Health Scheme, run by BPEX, receive reports on the health status of their finishing pigs, early warning of emerging diseases, objective measurement of herd health improvements and feedback on effectiveness of vaccination.
