Best Welfare Standards in the World?
The British Pig Industry Exposed The British pig farming industry makes repeated claims that it has some of the highest welfare standards in the world. Its promotional message – which recently featured in a number of prominent national newspaper advertisements – bolsters this claim by showing healthy-looking pigs on thick straw or out in the fields with plenty of space to roam.
In March and April 2008, as part of a major investigation, Animal Aid visited 10 English pig farms spanning five counties. Instead of idyllic images of straw-filled pens amidst leafy trees and bathed in sunlight, we found squalor, filth, death and disease.
