Pigs from the U.K. Arrived in NY on March 23, 2017

Here is a pic of them unloading my 19 pigs that came in on the 23rd from the U.K.- 15 gilts representing 14 lines and 4 boars – all 4 of the boar lines. They will be in quarantine for 30 days and hopefully all will pass and then head for Oregon. We lost 1 gilt – our only missing line – while in the 60 day quarantine in the U.K. 

 

 

Some of the pigs were so large I had to have a double deck shipping crate fabricated. They put 12 of the smallest pigs in the top deck and 7 of the largest in the bottom. There are 5 watering nipples on each deck.

Farms Not Factories

Farms Not Factories is a non-profit organisation working through film-making and campaigning to support the ‘food sovereignty’ movement by exposing the true costs of cheap meat from animal factories in order to inspire people to only buy meat from local, healthy, high welfare farms.

Our long term vision is a world without animal factories*. Downloads resources by clicking here.

*Animal factories can be defined as indoor facilities in which overcrowding and lack of bedding means that the animals suffer stress and disease, are prone to tail biting and have to be routinely given antibiotics.
