Because my friends now email me all pig related things, I have this call-out from the ‘Pigs are still worth it’ pig farmers’ campaign for a new anthem for the pork industry:
In 2008 the Pigsareworthit! anthem, “Stand By Your Ham” attracted huge amounts of publicity and support for the campaign. We are now looking for a new campaign anthem to help raise awareness of the 2011 Pigsarestillworthit! Campaign. We are looking for pithy and humorous suggestions for a title and lyrics that communicate the following campaign messages:
- The losses pig farmers are experiencing due to high feed prices
- The need for a fair price from supermarkets and processors
- The higher welfare standards of British pig farming
Email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s the 2008 video of ‘Stand by your ham’ but you have to watch the whole thing before you get to the pigs:
Thanks to Lucy for the heads-up!
