On the occasion of the Conference of Ministers of Agriculture held in North Rhine-Westphalia, the German Farmers' Association (DBV) has wished to draw attention on the German pig producers' dramatic situation. According to the general secretary of the German Farmers' Association, Mr Bernhard Krüsken, this situation has been caused, among other reasons, by the special national laws regarding the environment and animal welfare, as well as due to the excessive bureaucracy.

These factors are joined by a decisive factor, from the DBV's viewpoint: the prohibition of castrating piglets without anaesthetics. According to Mr Krüsken: “We need practical solutions for all the companies, so they can still be competitive with respect to the rest of Europe. Therefore, it is necessary that the farmers may administer themselves the local anaesthetic before the castration procedure.”
