So this is happening. Right now 700,000 healthy pigs including baby pigs are being killed every week to reduce herd size due to slaughterhouse backlog. This is beyond inhumane. Healthy hogs are being killed and disposed of - carcasses weighing up to 300 pounds (136 kilograms) are going into landfills, or by composting them on farms for fertilizer. Baby pigs are being killed to reduce herd size. In the words of one farmer, “Believe me, we’re double-stocking barns. We’re putting pigs in pens that we never had pigs in before just trying to hold them. We’re feeding them diets that have low energy just to try to stall their growth" There must be another solution. Let's put a stop to this inhumane practice now.
