The Dutch Federation of Agriculture and Horticulture (LTO) expects these consequences on the basis of a current survey amongst its members. In 2013, all sow operations in Europe will have to offer loose sow housing.

Chairman Annechien ten Have said "Reorganizations in bad times are logical. The problem is, however, that not only badly-operated farms will be struck by these mandatory investments – but ordinary family-operated farms as well." Reorganizations are arriving at a very bad moment as many operations are currently in difficult financial positions due to adverse times in the pig industry.
