We are reliably informed that the happy ‘smiling’ piglets featured on the cover of this year’s BBC Countryfile Calendar are of Rattlerow origin.

The ‘Piglets on Parade’ picture was taken in Norfolk by a visitor staying on one of our customers’ farms. It was voted winner of the programme’s 2014 photographic competition, which was themed ‘animal magic’.

The LandRoc-Optimus litter featured in the frame are between two and three weeks old and certainly capture the essence of British pig production at its best.

We are thrilled with this discovery – it’s great start to the New Year.

The calendar is produced and sold in aid of the BBC Children In Need Appeal and last year raised in excess of £1.4 million.
