Sow stalls confine female pigs for their adult lives in a space so small they cannot turn around.

Following 2 or 3 years of intensive confinement, sows are trucked to slaughter.

Many stalled sows develop stereotypies - abnormal, repetitive behaviours without function.

The chronic confinement also results in muscle atrophy, lameness and arthritis.

Some of the sows become "downers", yet are transported to auctions, collecting stations and slaughterhouses.

Crated sows are some of Canada's most health-compromised animals, yet the vast majority are transported to the U.S. for slaughter. Routes are between 15-44 hours long.

Please, support our campaign to help bring an end to the cruel confinement of sows.
