The National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (NAWAC) has completed a review of the Animal Welfare (Pigs) Code of Welfare 2005 and a draft code has been released for public consultation.

While the draft code does not immediately ban the use of crates and stalls, it does propose new limits for the amount of time they can be used post mating/farrowing and proposes to prohibit the use of sow stalls for all use after a date to be determined after the consultation process.

Accordingly, the draft code contains standards that:
• limit the use of farrowing crates to four weeks post-farrowing from the date the code is issued
• limit the use of dry sow stalls to four weeks post-mating after 31 December 2012
• prohibit the use of dry sow stalls at a date to be determined following the consultation process
