The controls on animal health carried out on Danish pig farms have given rise to a great number of fines. Faced with this situation, the Minister of the Environment and Food, Mr Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, has announced that as of 2019 there will be more controls.

According to the annual report on animal welfare, 40% of the verified pig producers did not fulfil the regulations. This entails an increase in comparison with 2016, where 33% of the farms did not fulfil the regulations.

The areas that have caused the greatest number of fines are:

1. Ill/injured animals that do not receive appropriate care/treatment.

2. Animals that do not have a permanent access to materials for rooting.

3. Lack of registers or mistakes in the veterinary treatments registers.
