THE NETHERLANDS - The Netherlands’ Pigs in Sight foundation, which was launched by several Dutch pig producers to promote public understanding of modern pig production has recived a ticking-off by Dutch advertising watchdogs.

Its web site has been ruled misleading, because it gives the impression that stalls-free systems are typical of Dutch pig production.

Dutch agricultural organisations are angered by the decision.

Pigs in Sight aims to grow the number of producers who allow public visits to pig houses without prior arrangements, to look at the pigs from behind glass.
