A Brief History
In December 1883, the first pig society in England was founded. It was incorporated in 1884 as The British Berkshire Society. The first volume of the Herd Book was issued in 1885. The society amalgamated with the National Pig Breeders Association in 1927. This organisation is now known as The British Pig Association, and is based in Cambridge.
The Berkshire Pig Breeders Club in its current form was founded in 1983 for three reasons; to promote the Berkshire breed, to further communication between breeders and encourage the keeping of pedigree Berkshire pigs.
Club members receive four Newsletters a year packed with useful, informative and entertaining articles. They also support the Club in it's advertising of the Berkshire breed at most agricultural shows around the Country. And, it's a great place to make friends.
