    1. I always feel so sad to see female pigs in tiny factory farm pens. So inhumane. The picture here shows female in stall big enough for her to walk around in and lie comfortably and change position easily while piglets can run around her also lie comfortably on straw and play a little with each other or mother. I hope that this forum will choose this type of pig raising because surely a stressed mother carries stress hormones in blood as do piglets so that must affect people also. I stopped buying pork and bacon several Years ago when seeing the horrific conditions the pigs were kept in. The straw bedding can be recycled for manure for gardens. The young piglets should be allowed out into grassed areas to get sunshine and run and play on solid ground for good health. It should not be about the amount of fat but the good health of the pig. Pig Fat no healthier for humans than for the pigs.
