Have you considered diversifying in to contract rearing pigs?

Join us virtually at CropTec to find out the benefits for your farm

Who is BQP?

BQP operate a fully integrated pork supply chain, we have been working with our farmer partners to produce high welfare pork for over 40 years.

What are the benefits of being a BQP farming partner?

• Secure a source of farmyard manure (phosphorus, potassium and nitrogen)

• An additional sustainable farm enterprise with a monthly payment

• Security, stability and an all year-round cash flow

• Tried and tested system

• Long term contract

• A stable venture to increase farm income and to enable other family members to come back and work on the farm if desired

How do we do it?

We operate our own high welfare outdoor breeding units which supply our high welfare indoor straw based growing units.

The finished pigs then go to one of our three abattoirs and afterwards on to one of our own packing plants and finally to the UK’s leading retailers.

We are looking for farmers who would be interested in growing pigs with us.

Existing pig buildings, clear-span buildings suitable for conversion and new purpose-built pig buildings would all be considered.

We currently have over 160 new purpose-built pig buildings around the UK and offer a new build package to help existing and new entrants in to pig farming.

Many of our farming partners who were previously exclusively arable farmers have chosen this option due to the subsided capital outlay that we offer.

Is previous pig experience essential? No, but a willingness to learn and a commitment of approx. 2 hours a day is essential. All new farms are guided through their first batches and have a dedicated fields person and vet for continued advice and support.

Why is nutrient use efficiency important?

Making the most out of crop nutrition, and producing more food with less inputs, is the major challenge facing UK farmers over the next decade. Increasingly, farmers will need to focus on making the most efficient use of nutrients for both arable and grassland production. This means ensuring crops have an adequate supply of all the nutrients they need that are essential to optimise yields.
