Pigs with tails – A Nordic specialty

Pigs with tails – A Nordic specialty

In good care

Pleasant living conditions are the cornerstones of pig welfare. In Finland:

  • Pigs have more space than in many other countries
  • Pigs have high quality feed and free access to fresh water
  • Free farrowing and lactation is highly subsidized 
  • Full slatted floors are forbidden
  • Castration is always done with pain relief

In these conditions pigs don’t suffer from stress. Stressed pigs bite thetails of other pigs
and to prevent this, tails are docked in many countries. In Finland we don’t have to do that.

Acceptable living conditions also minimise the need for medication.
As a result, we can offer you 100 % antibiotic free Atria pork.
