The main findings of the SCAHAW
scientists on the welfare problems arising from intensive pig farming systems are that:- keeping pigs, and in particular sows, in social isolation and in individual stalls impedes social interaction and natural behaviour such as rooting;- artificial floors and slatted floors cause injury, discomfort and impede normal rooting behaviour;- certain feeding systems used may cause aggressive behaviour of the animals, notably in cases where dry sows are under-fed and kept hungry throughout most of their lives;- incompetent personnel is a cause of suffering for animals even in good housing systems.
Therefore it results from the opinion of the SCAHAW
that BST should not be used in dairy cows.
