Latest NewsMP Backs Farmers on Proposed Pig Feed Ban
East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight has pressed the Government to make the case in the EU against banning certain nutrients in piglet feed.
Sir Greg says: “Zinc Oxide is an important additive in piglet feed and it helps piglets thrive. However following pressure from the Governments of France and the Netherlands, bureaucrats in Europe now want to ban it.
Sir Greg has asked farming minister George Eustace to make the case in Europe against the ban. The Minister replied that following UK representations, plans for an EU wide ban are now being reconsidered.
Sir Greg said: “Zinc oxide has a vital role in piglet health and its continued use is vital to the industry. I am pleased that UK Ministers recognise this and I hope common sense will prevail”.
