Pig Industry Board

Pig Industry Board


The Pig Industry Board was established in 1937 in Southern Rhodesia as wholly self-financed body as part of the Pig Industry Act of 1937 to control the industry.

The Act allowed the board to impose levies on pigs slaughtered in the Colony, for the payment of bounties on pig products, for the licensing of bacon factories and the expropriation or closing of certain such factories and generally for the regulation of the pig industry in the Colony and for other incidental purposes.
