A Review of the scientific literature and the international pig welfare codes and standards to underpin the future Standards and Guidelines for Pigs (Review) has been undertaken and will inform the upcoming development of the Australian Animal Welfare Standards and Guidelines for Pigs. The Review provides conclusions, recommendations and future research for numerous welfare issues relevant to the Australian pig industry. The Review was undertaken by the Animal Welfare Science Centre, University of Melbourne and funded by Australian Pork Limited and can be found here.
