Around the world, millions of pigs are kept inside in noisy, confined spaces, where their natural instincts to root and forage are severely constrained. And because we import so much cheap meat from abroad, there is a continued pressure for many UK farmers to use more intensive systems in order to compete.
With your support today, we can help farmers move towards a kinder, nature-friendly way of pig farming.
The cramped conditions on intensive farms inevitably lead to a wide range of distressing problems for pigs:
