Future Farmer:13-year-oldSeb Carr


When Seb was eight he received four pigs for Christmas. Now he has one of the largest pedigree herds of the rare British Saddleback pig in the UK.
Two years ago he started showing them, and qualified for both the 2022 and 2023 national championships.
In 2023 Seb became the youngest ever recipient of the British Pig Association’s New Pedigree Breeder of the Year award, enjoying a swish night out at the National Pig Awards in London last November!
Seb, from Sturminster Newton, is about to start the 2024 show season with his team of 12 pigs – he takes it so seriously he even has a show ring set up at home to practise. Seb’s parents take him and the pigs all over the UK – even on the ferry to the Isle of Wight!
His pigs are well known in the local area, and he sells them as far afield as Devon, Wiltshire and Hampshire.
And as if his own pigs weren’t enough for one teenager, Seb’s recently taken a Saturday job on a local dairy farm, furthering his knowledge and passion for UK agriculture.
