“If consumers across the world could see how their food is produced, they’d think again.”
I had seen the burgeoning mega-piggeries in China; I wanted to see some of the smaller ones in case they presented better conditions for animal welfare.
The farm owners were really sensitive about letting us see how their pregnant pigs are kept. With persistence, we got to uncover what it was they didn’t want us to witness.
We also got a glimpse of the gathering human health consequences from keeping animals in conditions so dependent on antibiotics and other drugs.
In this film, I share my findings on how it’s the nature of the operation that is the concern; whether it is intensive or not; rather than simply the scale of the farm.
