Pig Health

According to InterPig1, (2012) the Irish pig meat industry was 11c/kg less competitive than the other main exporting countries (Denmark, Germany, Netherlands & France) due to the cost of our location (import of feed), as well as higher health and A.I. costs (0.11c v 0.8c / kg). However our location, on the west of Europe in a less pig dense region could potentially be of benefit to the industry by creating an environment to produce the healthiest pigs in Europe.
