Canada Bans Gestation Crates for Pregnant Pigs

on 08 March 2014

Canada has banned the use of gestation crates for pregnant sows this week. The Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Pigs declares that any pork facility being built or renovated after July 1, 2014, must use group housing systems for pregnant sows. Hopefully this nationwide ban in Canada will inspire a wider spread change in the United States, where only 9 states ban the use of gestation crates. While the use of gestation crates is only the tip of the iceberg concerning the welfare of animals raised for food, eliminating their use is a sign of progress. The best way to be sure that no animals are harmed in the making of your food is to reduce the amount of meat, dairy, and eggs that you consume. (ecorazzi.com)
