Painful Husbandry Practices

Farmed Animals

SPCA advocates for farming practices which use selective breeding, provision of sufficient living space and appropriately enriched environments to avoid the need for painful husbandry procedures.

Rather than physically altering animals to fit a poor farm environment, our organisation supports farms which provide better management, husbandry and nutrition to ensure that the farm environment provides for the welfare needs of the animals.
