Forgive me lord for I am about to post a total derp!!!!
This history comes from a 2007 article on the swine based webpage "The Pig Site", I shit you not!!
UK - The MLC's Pig Development Unit at Stotfold in Bedfordshire has closed. Opened by Lord Belstead, Minister of State (Lords), Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Foods in November 1984, the centre has been at the forefront of practical research and investigation into production techniques, meat quality and genetic performance. Over the years the unit has undergone many changes, but always firmly aimed at delivering practical opportunities and trial work that could be quickly disseminated and implemented on commercial pig farms. The British pig industry owes a huge debt of gratitude to the staff, scientists - and the pigs - that have provided such a vital link in its development for more than 20 years.
At its peak MLC Stotfold employed 10 staff and had a 300-sow farrow to finish operation. However, major changes in the industry, and a fundamental shift in the strategy of the British Pig Executive (BPEX), meant it was no longer needed. The unit has been gradually wound down during the past six months and the remaining two members fo staff, unit manager Lisa Taylor and stockman Malcolm Day, have now been made redundant. BPEX is currently exploring the possibility of site redevelopment and has applied for planning permission"
