RSPCA Standards - Pigs

The RSPCA has developed standards for pigs. Pigs reared on RSPCA Approved farms live in a well-managed outdoor system, within enhanced indoor environments or a combination of both.

The production system on an RSPCA Approved farm caters for pigs behavioural and physiological needs. RSPCA Standards do not allow for sow stalls or traditional farrowing crates. All pigs are reared, handled and transported with consideration and care and slaughtered humanely.

Note: On rare occasions, an exemption to a specific standard (on a particular site) may be allowed, where the RSPCA believes animal welfare is not compromised.
