Pig Aid: Stand By Your Ham

PIG AID: UK – The British pig industry is looking for pig farmers, who can sing and play musical instruments, to take part in a recording of a campaign song.

The Pig Aid song is a musical means to show the plight of the British pig farmers and keep their campaign over high feed prices in the public eye.

“To keep the story of the feed price campaign fresh we constantly have to think of new and imaginative stories to grab the attention of the media,” said a spokesman for the British Pig Executive.

“As part of the next stage of the campaign we are launching “Pig Aid,” the recording of a song to demonstrate the ongoing problems facing pig farmers.

“This will provide us with a strong story for press, broadcast and online media.

We are currently looking for pig farmers who can sing or play a musical instrument to take part in the recording of the song. So if you can sing or play (or even if you can’t but want to take part) we’d like to hear from you. The song title and venues for recording to be confirmed at a later date.”

Stand by Your Ham

Right now it’s hard to make a living
Rearing all your pigs for pork and ham.
The supermarkets make money
But we don’t make any money
And that’s quite hard to understand
But if they gave us a little more money
Gave us farmers a fairer share.
Coz we take good care of our pigs
We’re so proud of them
To us they’re more than pork and ham.

Stand by your ham.
Sausages, pork and bacon
Help us to stay in business
Because our pigs are worth it.
Stand by your ham.
Sausages, pork and bacon
Keep givin’ all the help you can
Stand by your ham.

— Lyrics by Barney Kaye, National Pig Association
