PigsWhen you see the RSPCA Approved logo on pork you can be confident that this product has come from a farm with a focus on welfare.
On the farm
Pigs on RSPCA Approved farms have the space to move, forage, socialise and explore. Whether raised indoors or with access to the outdoors, there’s a focus on providing for pigs’ behavioural and physical needs. Sow stalls and traditional farrowing crates are not allowed under the RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme.
- Space to move and aren’t confined to sow stalls or farrowing crates
- Can forage and socialise with other pigs
- Enjoy a comfortable, dry area to rest
- Aren’t tail docked, teeth clipped or surgically castrated
RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme Standards are based on animal welfare science, RSPCA policy, leading farming practices in Australia and overseas and take account of the commercial realities associated with farming. Livestock industries and individual producers also provide input. The standards are reviewed every five years and are publicly available.
