At Festival HQ, we know that pigs are an important part of many smallholdings, whether breeding, rearing and processing as a business, for land management or raising a couple of weaners for the freezer. Smallholders also play a critical role in protecting and promoting British breeds of pigs – all eleven of which are included on the Rare Breed Survival Trust’s Watchlist.
We’re delighted to host the British Kunekune Pig Society Scottish Show. Judging will commence judging at 10am. Once the judging has concluded, at around 12 noon, Alan Jamieson, from Sauchenhall Farm, assisted by Shuggy and Rhino, will be showing off a bit of pig agility! Visitors are very welcome to try pig whispering with these very special pigs.
For 2020, the Festival aims to showcase as many pig breeds as possible. While we will be approaching breed societies, we are more than happy to work with individual breed enthusiasts to bring livestock to the Festival.
