Animal Welfare Facts
Pigs in factory farms never see direct sunlight, their feet never touch the earth, and they are unable to behave naturally.
Sow stalls confine pregnant sows for most of their lives. The sow cannot turn around, and has to eat, sleep, urinate and defecate in this tiny space. All of the sows in factory farms in Manitoba are confined to stalls.
Because of unnatural living conditions, pigs experience a great deal of stress and are more susceptible to disease. Breeding for fast growth results in animals with weaker immune systems.
