New research shows strong support for group housing of sows

Erin Ryan recently defended her M.Sc. thesis on public attitudes to housing systems used for pregnant sows. Her online survey of 268 participants found strong support for group housing systems over the commonly used gestation stalls. The thesis also illustrated the importance of providing detailed descriptions, including imagery, in efforts to engage the public on issues related to farm animal welfare.
