40 piggeries exposed so far: we've closed 2, with 38 still open. Know of one near you? Let us know.
To relevant government and industry officials:
The level of cruelty and disrepair at Wally's Piggery in NSW is unacceptable, with many proven breaches of The Model Code of Practice for the Welfare of Animals. I implore you to do all in your power to shut down the facility permanently and to a reasonable extent seek new accommodation for the animals where they will not be raised for slaughter.
Other piggeries elsewhere in Australia should be immediately and rigorously inspected for similar conditions.

It is sickening treatment of other sentient beings.
Samantha Overy Tue 4/6/13 10:56pm
Sow stalls are cruel. Pigs do not deserve to live in sheds their entire short lives, they must be able to wallow in the mud and move around freely. Anything less is appalling cruelty. Piggeries like this MUST stop. Those found abusing animals in their care must attract massive penalties and lose ALL their livestock with lifetime bans to apply. Intensive animal industry is inherently cruel so anything else MUST be treated harshly as soon as it is discovered so it is kept to a minimum.

Humans are the most recent earthlings, unfortunately the most destructive and selfish beings. Most things we do harm the earth but animal consumption is our biggest problem. It is not only bad for your health but it is also bad for the planet - Livestock production occupies 70% of all land used for agriculture, or 30% of the land surface of the planet. It is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gases, responsible for 18% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions as measured in CO2 equivalents.
But apart from the fact that it's clearly ruining the earth it's just cruel, factory farming is a cruel, disgusting and unexposed version of mass murder. All animals desire to live, they're intelligent earthlings and they all feel emotion, every emotion. Pigs are said to be smarter than 3 year old children, smarter than dogs. So why do we eat pigs but love dogs?
The reasons continue.. but there's just so much to stay it overwhelms me.
Choose your mind over your taste buds, remember who you were when you were a child, remember feeling compassion for every living thing. Go vegan.

Sandy London Fri 3/5/13 8:16pm
Humans need to stop this hell. It's also in the US and several other countries. There should be a global movement to end this hell. Disgraceful. Disgusting. Inhumane. This place is absolute hell. Those pigs are living in a nightmare. What can be done to shut this place down and get these animals out? I'm sick over this place. How can people still eat Pork, Ham, Bacon after knowing it comes from these places? HOW CAN YOU? Wally's Piggery "MUST" be closed down for good. You need to do jail time Wally, just like the other bastards who you employ. Humans have "NEVER" really evolved, we just became clever VERMIN, the consequences of our ''evolution'', of human ''civilisation'', turning our planet/home into a giant filthy diaper. I despair for the fate of animals, the senseless cruelties inflicted upon them by our species, and their helplessness in the face of mass slaughter. If we could really see what we have done to the earth, we would "ALL" go mad. This makes me cry, that no one has closed down this "HELL-HOLE". Who is being paid to keep this hell-hole running?
Shirley Birney Wed 1/5/13 10:14pm
Mr Ludwig, your department states that animal cruelty will not be tolerated and that you will not compromise on any cruelty to animals.
Alas Mr Ludwig, we the public have witnessed media reports of pigs with gaping sores and being eaten alive by maggots and supplied to the "fresh food people." In a piggery in WA, owned by a prominent board member of the pig industry, pigs were crammed into pens, standing on each other and cannibalising their dead companions. And then we, the consumer, unwittingly eat them. "Mad Pigs' disease," Mr Ludwig?
You and your state cohorts make a mockery of the codes of practice for animal welfare and are a blight on this "first world" nation.
Who are you protecting Mr Ludwig et al? The hapless pig or the diabolical pig grower?
Justin Henderson Mon 29/4/13 5:35pm
I call on the federal and state governments to conduct a full inquiry into factory farming in Australia. To conduct the inquiry as to the ethical implications of this mode of farming and to the immediate welfare and rights of animals already within this mode of farming.

To commenter 20238- Don't worry, we can also bring guns to your farm when we visit.You need to be shut down, treating animals like this is disgusting and horrific, not to mention archaic ( look that word up if you have a dictionary). I really hope that you come back as a pig in your next life and you have to suffer the same fate, however hopefully by then no animals will ever have to go through the treatment that you dish out, all in the name of money and greed.You will get what you deserve one day.

SHANE COX, Appellant, v. STATE OF FLORIDA, Appellee. drugs known to cause drug induced lupus lupus symptoms and signs in men
It is clear that the estate has no assets other than the proceeds of the settlement. After obtaining the cost judgment against the estate, General Motors Corporation filed a motion in the probate division to have the judgment considered a Class 1 priority under Section 733.707, Florida Statutes (1979). The personal representative objected and filed a petition for authorization to distribute the proceeds of the settlement. The personal representative asserted her attorneys' fees were $ 9,709.35 1 and that the costs were $ 44,726.53, 2 leaving approximately $ 35,000. She sought distribution of $ 20,000 to the surviving spouse, $ 5,000 each to the three children, and nothing to the estate. The probate division granted the motion of General Motors Corporation requiring the personal representative to satisfy the cost judgment. No ruling was made on the petition of the personal representative to authorize distribution. lupus support groups dc lupus myocarditis review article
