The National Pork Board bases animal care and well-being programs on one foundation: What is best for the pig? We continuously evaluate the best scientific research available, and current research indicates that there are several production systems that can be good for pigs. These systems include open pens, gestation stalls and open pastures. Regardless of the system, what really matters is the individual care given to each pig.
The National Pork Board has a strong commitment to animal welfare, sustainability and environmental stewardship. To learn more about our practices and our people, please visit porkcares.org.
