Standard factory farm practices in South Africa include tail docking, removal of teeth, and castration without anesthetic and the usage of cruel gestation and farrowing crates for long peroids of time.
Global Industry Standards
Intensive pig farming practices are mostly standardised across the world and South Africa is no exception. Inquisitive and intelligent pigs are forced to endure a life time of suffering which ends brutally at the abattoir. Abattoir lines go so fast that there are often mistakes in the production line. Many pigs end up in scalding tank still alive after botched stunning and throut slitting.
