After several hours of intense discussion and deliberation, the swine subcommittee for the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board decided to remove an exemption in its recommendations, that would have allowed existing swine producers to expand their stall-based facilities beyond 2025.

The subcommittee’s proposal, which will be presented to the full board in upcoming meetings, still allows gestation stall use up until 2025, and thereafter, if it’s done from post weaning to “a period of time that seeks to maximize embryonic welfare and allows for the confirmation of pregnancy.”

And, they may be used after 2025 if the circumstance could jeopardize the swine’s welfare, such as an injured, frail, thin or aggressive animal.
