incorrect answer

Of the 400,000 producing sows in the UK, 40% are reared in outdoor systems. Most of them are part of a control and welfare auditing program that allows their products to carry the RSPCA Assured label. This allows to sell them at a price €0.07-0.11/kg higher than the conventionally produced pork.
