Showing pigs?

Can someone tell me what sort of set up I need with regards to isolation housing, so that I can show my pigs without having my holding being on shut down for long periods? What are the legal requirements?
Thanks in advance.

Talk to your local animal health they will point you in the right direction. basically from memory (its been along time since we sorted ours) you get a vist from a defra vet (FOC to you) they will take measurements and draw a map of your isolation and do the necessary recording. you put your show stock in isolation for 20 days prior to showing and back in there on their return. this means only show stock is on standstill, all others can be moved off.
