Organic pigs to be anaesthetised

Most of Holland’s organic pig breeders are to anaesthetise their piglets before castration from July. The measure has been adopted by the organic big breeders association which has 53 members – about 90% of Dutch organic pig farmers.

Together they castrate some 300,000 piglets each year.
