In the pork industry today confinement housing is very hot topic. Animal rights activists believe that it is inhuman to house swine in confinement. Well I am here to prove them wrong. From an animal welfare point of view the confinement housing is great. Lets looks at what makes confinement housing so great. In confinement pigs are put into a pen with a slatted floor for the waste to be collected. They are provided with all the feed they want, a climate controlled barn, and a clean reliable water source. The only real issue with confinement is that some farmers over crowd pens. over crowding pens is an issue because it leads to injury. Other than that confinement housing great for the swine. Animal rights activist are just hypocrites.
