AHDB Pork continues to work closely with the pig industry, Government, universities and allied industry organisations to further enhance the welfare of pigs throughout their production life on farm, during transport and at slaughter.
We aim to provide up to date training and advice on welfare issues to help pig producers comply with existing and emerging legislation. Current important themes include
provision of environmental enrichment
freedom around farrowing,
solutions to tail biting,
tail-docking and teeth-clipping,
- euthanasia of sick/injured pigs.
