Realities of the Pig Industry

Almost all pigs raised for meat in Britain are factory farmed indoors in overcrowded, ill-lit, filthy conditions that cause extreme discomfort and stress to these intelligent animals.

Every time they give birth, most breeding pigs spend a month or more in a metal farrowing crate so small they can barely move.

Contrary to the image painted by the British pig industry and the Government, most pigs never see any bedding and spend their lives on dirty, wet concrete. Unsurprisingly, diseases are rife and so is the use of drugs and antibiotics.

Find out more about Viva!'s campaign to end the factory farming of pigs at www.viva.org.uk/campaigns/pigs/index.htm.
