Will the EU manage to phase out surgical castration of pigs

The deadlines of January 1st, 2012, and of 2018 of the “European Declaration on alternatives to surgical castration of pigs” are far from being met and there is a lack of consensus on the animal welfare implications and the feasibility of the alternatives to surgical castration without analgesia/anaesthesia. Although countries using analgesia/anaesthesia routinely find this method practical and effective, only few countries seem to aim at meeting the deadline to phase out surgical castration completely. A recent survey from the FVE pointed out those important issues that will be discussed during the webinar.
