Ozzie pork producers respond to ad campaign

08-08-2008 | |

Australian pork producers are reacting angrily to the animal rights group, Animals Australia’s extended advertising campaign protesting against practices in the pork industry.

A Pork Queensland board member is particularly shocked at the use of a child in the advertising campaign which calls on people to only eat free range pork.

Gayndah producer Paul Taylor says Australian producers are leaders in animal welfare, so the advertisements are only damaging the progress the industry has made.” It might affect them emotionally, but if you just look at it, it’s ludicrous suggesting that a pig thinks like a three-year-old child, that’s really what I can’t get over,” he said.
