Government Presents Guide to Pig Protection27 November 2012
SPAIN - The Director General of Agricultural Production and Markets, Carlos Cabanas, has presided over the presentation ceremony of the guidelines for the implementation of the minimum standards for the protection of pigs, and good practice for the management of pregnant sows.
These guidelines are inline with the EU directive on the protection of pigs and with the requirements needed from 1 January 2013.
These conditions will require more investment into providing the suitable housing for gilts in groups.
These guidelines will serve as a tool to address the adaptation of farms and should help to improve the competitiveness of Spanish products.
