Exposed by Aussie Farms and Animal Liberation QLD in May 2014, this is one of three breeding facilities owned by CEFN near Clifton, Queensland. Between these three sites, CEFN confines 4000 sows to tiny metal and concrete cages within sow stalls and farrowing crates for the majority of their lives until they are no longer producing efficiently, at which point they are sent off to be slaughtered.
CEFN is owned by the family of Ian Jones, the former mayor of Clifton Shire. It is now run by his two sons, Andrew Jones and Marcus Jones. CEFN supplies the Pilton Valley Pork brand of pig meat.
CEFN supplies semen to a number of farms across the country, for the purpose of artificially inseminating sows.
