Pork producers says pig ad campaign is misleading
Animal rights activists have launched a new
advertising campaign against pig farming in Australia.
The ads, put together by the groups Voiceless and Animals Australia
, depict pigs in small
pens with minimal room and piglets having their eye teeth clipped.
Pork Limited says the campaign is misleading.
Spencer says the ads are designed to be emotional and are not an accurate reflection of how pigs are grown commercially in Australia.
"The types of
words they're using are not trying to portray the independent view of the way
pigs are raised," he said.
"A lot of the
things they are talking about in terms of practices are done exactly for reasons
of optimising animal welfare and whilst it's a little bit hard for people who
are not familiar with this type of thing to understand that, it's in the
absolute interests of pig farmers that their animals are well looked
