A new pig welfare code has drawn a big response from the public calling for an end to the use of sow stalls and farrowing crates in the pork industry.

The National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee released a draft version of the new welfare code for pigs in March.

It recommends restricting the use of farrowing crates to four weeks post-farrowing from the end of this year.

It also limits the use of dry sow stalls to four weeks after mating from 2013 and supports a complete phase-out of the stalls by 2017.
