In an attempt to demonstrate the plight of the British pork industry, producers there will tune up their musical instruments and sing a song. As part of a campaign to protest high swine feed prices, British pork producers are preparing to grab the media’s attention in a creative way.

"As part of the next stage of the campaign, we are launching "Pig Aid,"-- the recording of a song to demonstrate the ongoing problems facing pig farmers,” said a spokesman for the British Pig Executive.. The Pig Aid song is a musical means to show the trouble faced by British pork producers and keep their campaign over high feed prices in the public eye.

"To keep the story of the feed price campaign fresh, we constantly have to think of new and imaginative stories and this will provide us with a strong story for press, broadcast and online media,” the spokesman continued.

The BPE is currently recruiting pork producers who can sing or play a musical instrument to take part in the recording of the song. The song title and venues for the recording will be confirmed at a later date.
